If you are a student-teacher, teaching assistant, teacher, coach, staff developer, and/or administrator and youre looking for a strategy book to build engagement, The BIG Book of Engagement Strategies was designed for you!
This book has over fifty strategies that you can use tomorrow with students (alright-some of them will require a little more prep, but you get the gist). Whats more, though many of the strategies in this book use a specific content area or grade level for an example, most can be easily modified no matter the age or ability of the students you work with or the content area that you teach thanks, in part, to the contributions of over fifteen educators who shared twenty different strategies!
The BIG Book of Engagement Strategies and its predecessor, Engagement is Not a Unicorn (Its a Narwhal), are premised on the idea that it is possible to achieve the highest levels of engagement in schools even if reaching that level has previously been seen as mythical. Highly engaged classrooms do exist, but many people have never seen it, some dont even believe its possible because they cant even imagine it, and still others think theyve achieved it even when they havent. In schools, absorption (the highest form of engagement) would look like student-driven environments where students initiate the learning and are intrinsically compelled to learn. They want to keep at it after the bell rings. After the lesson is over. After the unit is done. Even if they werent getting graded. Its out there, but its a narwhal.
Engagement is Not a Unicorn (Its a Narwhal) aimed to shine a light on the mysterious educational narwhal by explaining what engagement is and is not in order to grow as many narwhals in your school as possible. The BIG Book of Engagement Strategies aims to provide you with even more strategies to achieve that same outcome.
