We often talk about what it means to move from compliance to engagement. It’s the idea of creating an environment where students want to learn rather than have to learn. But if we want students to be creative, self-directed learners we need to go beyond student engagement and into empowerment. But this requires some paradigm shifts. That’s right. We’re going to be talking shift. Here’s what I mean: The empowered classroom is a shift from giving choices to inspiring possibilities It’s what happens when you move from making the subject interesting to tapping into student interests; when you go from saying “you must learn this” to asking “what do you want to learn?” It’s a shift from taking assessments to assessing your own learning, it’s an iterative process full of mistakes ...
For Education Training and Effective Results for Today's Youth Visit our website: http://Fighting4Youth.com Keep Students Engaged You might be wondering how to keep students engaged and focused, especially towards the end of the school year. In this video, you not only learn about how to keep them engaged and focused, but also how to get them to want to come to class. Classroom management towards the end of the school year is extremely difficult. As teachers, there is so much to compete with for the attention of the students.

http://www.kdsi.org If students are not engaged, there is little if any chance for meaningful achievement. But student engagement is not chance, especially for students disinclined to be engaged; it requires a teacher's careful planning and execution of specific strategies. In this course, educators will learn to create classroom environments in which engagement is the norm. Interviews with teachers and students, classroom footage, workshop activities, lecture, and the accompanying eBook bring to life this critical subject for the educator who aspires to engage all of his or her students in all of their learning.

In this time of instant gratification, short attention spans and communicating in 140 characters or less, it seems more and more difficult to engage today’s students in the traditional classroom setting. Without having to transform into a technology-wiz, there are specific strategies that can engage students from the first class and help to sustain that engagement throughout the semester. The student who is engaged tends to attend class more regularly, participate more frequently in class and will be more motivated to complete course requirements. In addition, the student who is engaged in the learning process will do just that…learn. This workshop highlights specific strategies to engage students in small classrooms as well as in large lecture-hall style courses. Participants learn way...

Project LEAP (Literacy Engagement and Achievement Program) is a literacy program for students in grades K-3 that provides personal attention for kids that need it most. The statistics are dire. Only 10 percent of African-American males and 9 percent of Latino males in Rochester are graduating from high school, the lowest in the country. For those reading at grade level by the third grade however, the odds become much higher. For this reason, the Warner School and North East Area Development (NEAD), have teamed up to offer this after-school literacy program at School 33. The hope is that this added support to these students will lead to better outcomes down the line. In addition to the programs inside the classroom, these two organizations are also working at coming to the students and pa...
