Facilitating Authentic Student Engagement through Intellectual Challenge & Purposeful Connection
Saturday, April 4th, 11:15am -12:30pm - Session II
Authentic student engagement requires both intellectual challenge and purposeful connection. A student’s level of engagement for any task will obviously be heightened if he/she feels personally & passionately connected to it. This highly interactive session will help teachers unpack students’ schema backpacks, routinely provide tasks with a low floor and a high ceiling, and better appreciate the learner’s lens. Participants will experience instruction, discussion, and application exercises, all supported through a multimedia approach.
