What is student engagement?
Putting Research into Practice
Why is it important for
students to be engaged
Drop-out rates and at-risk students
“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)

. . . . . . the attention, interest, investment, and effort students expend in the work of learning.” (Marks, 2000)
Summary of Findings
Timely Constructive Feedback
“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.”
Behavior Engagement- Student behaviors
Emotional Engagement- Student Affect
Cognitive Engagement- persistence and motivation
Teacher Student Relationship
"It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer."
