Increasing Student Engagement: Exploration
All children begin their path of learning by exploring the world around them. To advance that path this course provides tools, strategies, and opportunities for teachers to proficiently increase student engagement in the classroom through an exploration of new knowledge.
Connections with the Danielson’s Framework will be integrated throughout the course with a real-life, hands-on application for student engagement to address diverse student needs.
The primary goal of this course will be to help teachers reflect on the meaning of student engagement, examine the root causes of disengagement and identify evidence of positive student engagement within a positive classroom environment. Additionally, teachers will also understand the role of exploration for student learning and design a lesson that promotes exploration through a variety of different ways to promote student engagement.
