    Engaged Learning is a key to making classrooms productive and relatively free of distracting discipline problems. Just what is engaged learning?

    "Engaged learning is the process in which students actively participate in their learning. Students are involved, beginning on the first day, in the decision making of the course of their study. Students vigorously research, discuss, create projects, and use technology to make discoveries based on their choices. Students are active participants in the learning process. The teacher serves as a "coach or facilitator," guiding students to the desired goal.

    "Engaged learning allows students to participate in "real-life" activities through collaboration, exploration, and discovery with peers. Engaged learning projects do not focus on one subject, but the integration of many or all subjects. Assessment in engaged learning can be very diverse. Assessment should be real, continuing, and encouraging."

    (Source: Belt, K., et al., Green is Good)

    Engaged learning is a key variable in effective schools, best practices, and is the underlying purpose of behavior management and discipline programs.
    Exploring these twenty-two ENGAGED LEARNING sites will help you explore or expand your awareness of this key teaching/mentoring aspect.
