Keeping Students Engaged in the Classroom Keeping Students Engaged in the Classroom Presentation Transcript

  • KEEPING STUDENTS ENGAGED IN THE CLASSROOM
  • K E E P I N G S T U D E N T S E N GAG E D IN THE CL ASSROOM INTRODUCTION One of the major problems that educators encounter is finding methods to keep students engaged in learning. Of course, many studies have shown that students who are involved in their own education have had a supportive family environment. Since your job requires you to teach all types of children, whether motivated or not, therefore, you need to come up with strategies that will foster each student’s natural learning tendencies.

  • K E E P I N G S T U D E N T S E N GAG E D IN THE CL ASSROOM INTRODUCTION Traditionally teachers have adopted systems of rewards and punishment to encourage children to behave and pay attention to their lessons. However, studies have shown that this system of punishments and rewards may actually make it harder for children to learn. With the suggestions given in this guide, you will hopefully begin to manage your classroom in a way that will encourage students to participate in their own education.

  • K E E P I N G S T U D E N T S E N GAG E D IN THE CL ASSROOM INTRODUCTION The goals of this guide are to: Define an encouraging learning environment for students Explain the problem with using reward and punishment system Suggest different approaches to traditional systems Encourage innovation to engage students in the classroom Develop strategies to use when students get lost in a lesson K-12 EDUCATION PRACTICES & ISSUES - DR PATRICIA FIORIELLO
  • K E E P I N G S T U D E N T S E N GAG E D IN THE CL ASSROOM ENVIRONMENTS THAT FOSTER LEARNING In order to find out what kind of environments foster learning in your students, it is important to find out a little about their learning tendencies. Find out more in this guide to specifically tailor the classroom environment to foster learning. “When the [that] environment encourages exploration and curiosity and provides the resources that can enlarge the child’s view of the world, the child’s natural motivation to learn is encouraged.” – Heather Voke K-12 EDUCATION PRACTICES & ISSUES - DR PATRICIA FIORIELLO
  • K E E P I N G S T U D E N T S E N GAG E D IN THE CL ASSROOM WHY TRADITIONAL REWARD AND PUNISHMENT METHOD DOESN’T WORK? For a long time, there was a notion in education that the best way to get students engaged in education is to reward the students who were paying attention and punish those who were disrupting the class. However, with all those good and bad motivators in place, students’ motivation and engagement still remains low. K-12 EDUCATION PRACTICES & ISSUES - DR PATRICIA FIORIELLO
  • K E E P I N G S T U D E N T S E N GAG E D IN THE CL ASSROOM WHY TRADITIONAL REWARD AND PUNISHMENT METHOD DOESN’T WORK? In order to discover why positive and negative reinforcers don’t work, we need to look at what educators are attempting to do when they give rewards and punishments to students, and what they are actually doing. Find out how teachers may be reinforcing the correct behavior but damaging the child’s natural inclination to explore. K-12 EDUCATION PRACTICES & ISSUES - DR PATRICIA FIORIELLO
  • K E E P I N G S T U D E N T S E N GAG E D IN THE CL ASSROOM REWARDING STUDENTS MOTIVATED TO LEARN It is important for teachers to recognize and reward students who are motivated to learn. However, the rewards that students need are generally different from what teachers have been providing traditionally. Learn different, innovative and highly effective rewarding techniques to encourage your students. Children need smaller, more immediate encouragement to remain engaged in a project or lesson K-12 EDUCATION PRACTICES & ISSUES - DR PATRICIA FIORIELLO
