How can I design my workshop so that my students are more focused and engaged?
This is how...
- Create an environment where they are safe and willing to take the risks
- Flexible Pathways
- Personalized Learning
These are just a few of the things I have been pondering today. After a discussion with Ken this morning, learning more about the pillars, and delving into research on engagement, I am ready to tackle this question. I have discovered that it is so important to give student voice, choice and control over their own learning. I have always believed this, but was always unsure of how to percieve this in the context of the reality of the school year. I am starting to piece together how to make curriculum more engaging and motivating by tapping into students interests. I feel that it is possible to make connect their interests to the curriculum and I am going to take a risk and do so in my classroom.
