How do I help students engage productively in active learning classrooms?published Jul 19, 2017 10:33am
At http://physport.org/expert/framing you will find a series of articles about improving student engagement. Within each recommendation are linked activities, videos, and other concrete examples of how to accomplish this. You can also download the whole series as a PDF if you prefer. The articles discus setting clear expectations, helping students become expert learners, motivation, assessing engagement, the first day, group work, and facilitating student discussions. (See the full list of articles on this overview page).
