6 Golden Rules For Engaging Students -

6 Golden Rules For Engaging Students - | Positive Inclusion | Scoop.it

If the mind of a student isn’t engaged, understanding and content mastery don’t stand a chance; If the mind and heart together aren’t engaged, long-term retention and transfer of understanding and content mastery are unlikely as well.

The accompanying graphic does a good job of representing both of these sides of “engagement.” As she has become well-known, Sylvia Duckworth has taken a useful bit of content, and made it even more useful with a little ink and color. In this case, she’s taken ‘6 Golden Rules For Engaging Students” by Nicolas Pino James and given it the Duckworth treatment, and the results are predictably positive.

Schools around the world are saying goodbye to the conventional lecture-based learning space where the students remain inert in their respective seats and the teacher remains at the head of the class. In these new collaborative environments, teachers transition from doing all the talking to purposely creating opportunities for students to learn, and facilitating their thoughts and discussions about what they learn.

Juan Juan's curator insight, October 3, 2017 11:29 PM
Metacognition makes students better learners as they take part of the learning process as well as its assessment. The student must come up with questions such as; What was my understanding of the task in my own words? What did I do to achieve success on the task? What challenges did I face and how did I overcome them? Which standards did I meet and what evidence from my work supports that assessment? What goals did I set and meet? Which do I still need to work on? If I had the opportunity to do it again, what would I do differently? After making the student aware of this questions, they will not be the passive actor of the process who just receives a grade without the awareness of what it means. Students must go beyond the illusion of a grade and be certain of what they know, can do and are still not able to do.
