“Lack of engagement diversely affects student achievement and initiates a downward spiral that may lead to dysfunctional school behavior and, ultimately, culminate in some students leaving school entirely (Finn, 1989)

“If a student could not answer, Ms. Adams did not go on to another for the correct answer but demonstrated that it was all right not to know. It was not embarrassing in her class for the teacher to hint, “When I round to the nearest 10, Sandra, look at the ones if it's less than 5. . . .” Students understood that Ms. Adams' priority was learning, not correct answers.”
(Turner, 1998)
