• The Shift from Engaging Students to Empowering Learners

    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 ...

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.

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 that ultimately lead to success.   It’s a shift from the teacher asking all the questions to the students asking their own questions, where they chase the inquiry process and take learning off-road. It’s a shift from uncritical consuming to critical consuming and creating. Here students move from critical consuming to inspiration to creativity, where they use the design process to launch their work to the world. It’s a shift from differentiating instruction to personalizing learning  And it’s a shift from rigid to adjustable systems so that students own the process. They can set their own pace, choose their own formats, and decide what resources they want to use to accomplish their goals.  It’s a shift in mindset from compliance to self-direction.  In other words, it’s a shift toward student ownership. When that happens, our students become the creative, critical thinkers who change the world.

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. Teachers more than likely have those one or two students that typically challenge them, distract others, and cause them all kinds of problems through out the school year. Teachers are human, so at times they want to take these students and put them in the latest wrestling move to handle the situation and put an end to it. However, they can't do that and it's illegal. The parents of these students rarely if ever come to parent teacher conferences, but this situation would probably be the only way to get them to come and pay you teachers a visit. So this wouldn't be a good classroom management strategy to use. From traveling the country and speaking for various school systems, Chris Cannon has learned that, every behavior of the students is asking some kind of questions. Unfortunately, those questions are rooted in fear! When students act out or become a distraction in class, it's really something that they are of afraid of that's triggering the behavior. Regardless if a student is challenging, considered an at risk youth, problem student, etc, the root cause of their behavior closely related. One thing that teachers want to know is, how to keep students engaged and focused end of year? There are several options, but the key factor is having them active from the start to the end of class. If students are given too much idol time in class, this sets up much of the low level behaviors that teachers have to address. A way for teachers to keep their students engaged and focused is by providing daily activities. These activities don't have to be the same everyday, but they need to be consistent. There needs to be an expectation from the teacher to the students, that communicates that these activities is something that will be done at the start of class. In addition to the activities being done at the start of class, they should be short and meaningful. If a student knows that what you're giving them is a worksheet that won't get graded and will probably end op in the trash, they won't put much effort into doing it. So activities should be short, connected to the students concerns, and meaningful. When you make activities connected to what concerns students have or what's important to students, they will not only be engaged and focused, but they will look forward to coming to class. At this point, classroom management is something teachers can actually implement. A great activity that can be implemented are writing assignments. It could be writing assignments related to current events because there is so much going on from school shootings, to bombing, among so many other things that students might not know to do deal with. These writing assignments could also be geared toward the movie industry, music industry, or even social media. Regardless of the focus of writing, it can be a way for teachers to learn more about students and what's important to them and what concerns they have. Regardless if a student is labeled an at risk youth, trouble student, or challenging student, most of them view school as the safe zone. These students might not have perfect attendance, but they show up on a regular basis. The reason being is because some of them fear being at home, which is where much of the end of school year challenges come from. The more they think of being home full time, the more they experience fear. Often times the behavior they display towards teachers isn't about the teacher at all, it's about what they have to go back to and what they will experience as a result of it. These students might not have the communication skills or the capacity to express what they're feeling so in many cases, they act it out. However, by writing about different things that concerns them, writing can become the substitute for the behavior. 00:35 Students that are always challenging teachers and what you want to do with them. 02:00 Effective activities to keep students engaged! 02:37 How to make activities more engaging and relevant to students. 07:24 How to pique student's interest and keep them focused the entire class period.

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 ways to enhance their teaching style to help promote greater student engagement.

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 parents at home as well. The home visit aspect of the program offers families with children that participate in Project LEAP the opportunity to meet with Warner students and NEAD volunteers to assess what's working with the program (and sometimes what's not), and how the students are doing with their reading. This added dimension to the literacy program gives the teams some insight not only into what kind of learning is happening at school, but what kind of support they have at home. It also gives parents a chance to voice concerns and get some support from outside that they may need to help mentor their child. The project has been part of a collaborative effort between the Warner School and NEAD, which has been going on for more than five years. It's a partnership that has a long-term vision of addressing the many needs of the community just as education and poverty by combining grass-roots, neighborhood based services with the knowledge and best practices that are developed through years of research at the University.
