25 Tricks To Improve A Boring Lesson For Improved Student Engagement

25 Tricks To Improve A Boring Lesson For Improved Student Engagement | Universal Design for Learning and Curriculum | Scoop.it

"Over the years, I’ve noticed how one question can change the dynamics of any situation. Everything might be moving along quite nicely at the dinner table, everyone’s happy and laughing but one question can send those same smiling faces into a frenzy of shouts and upset. This also holds true in a classroom. Students may be working quietly and the teacher might be content but one question or comment from a student or the teacher can turn that quiet into bubbling sea of chatter.

 

Beyond textbooks and worksheets, at the core of every basic lesson lies the key to teaching students anything and everything–student engagement."

Jane Strunck's insight:

"So when we think about the testing accommodations, clearly we must consider daily instruction. How are these students gaining access to Common Core-related instruction each day so that the testing accommodations are meaningful for them?"
