Vague definitions of "student engagement" create confusion and contribute to the achievement gap. Have you created a common definition of "student engagement" in your district? Are all leaders looking at engagement through the same set of eyes? Do your instructional practices ensure ALL students are active with academic content? Kagan has the answer! It is possible to structure engagement so that every learner is active. If you want to narrow achievement gaps you cannot engage a FEW students or SOME students; you must engage ALL. Structured interaction is the key. During this interactive session, Kagan will demonstrate how engagement for ALL can become a reality in your district.
