The Engagement Cube: What Captivates Today’s Learners

About This Course

The standards are aligned. The teacher is a content wizard. The classroom is well managed and runs smoothly. Yet the students seem to be “going through the motions.”

How can teachers plan for student engagement? What are the qualities of engaging student work? What is the relationship between engagement, levels of thinking, and effective instructional strategies?

This course applies the concepts of Phillip Schlechty’s “Working on the Work,” using video vignettes of master teachers’ classrooms. Participants will discover eight qualities of student work that lead to higher levels of engagement.
