Teachers are expected to “manage the learning environment to actively and equitably engage students by organizing, allocating and coordinating the resources of time, space and learner’s attention” (InTASC 3(d).
For this assignment, your principal has asked you to develop a presentation about student motivation and engagement strategies. This presentation will be used in a professional development workshop for first-year teachers.
Using the “Class Profile,” select a grade 1-8 and create a 10-15 slide PowerPoint presentation. In completing your presentation:
Research, analyze, and select seven strategies that foster motivation and active engagement in learning, self-motivation, and positive social interaction among the students.
Explain each strategy in your own words.
Identify classroom arrangements that are best for each engagement strategy.
Support your presentation with three scholarly resources.
Create a title slide, reference slides, slide notes that provide a detailed explanation of how you would implement each strategy in your future classroom.
In addition, write a 200-250 word student engagement strategies statement. Include components of your presentation that you would incorporate into your future classroom management plan, and explain why.
Include a minimum of three scholarly references.
