Student Engagement

Students learn better when they're paying attention, so chose instructional strategies that reduce cognitive load and make it easier for students to participate and pay attention. Consider the first principles of instruction:

  • Center instruction on real-world tasks or problems
  • Provide structure for organizing new knowledge by directing students to recall prior knowledge
  • Demonstrate new knowledge in context of real world problems
  • Direct students to practice applying the new knowledge and provide feedback
  • Encourage students to integrate their new knowledge into their life
