Reflection: Relevance Animal Chatter! - Section 2: Engage:

 

I am one of those teachers that believes a classroom is all about what works for kids. Keeping the learning relevant is key to effective learning but keeping things relevant can be tricky.  In an inquiry based problem, student engagement and interest is a key factor. Engaging students can be done in many ways:

*Asking students, "What are you interested in?"  "What do you want to know about this topic?"

*Music

*Read Alouds

*Movies

*An open ended question that will guide students to develop their own inquiry questions

*Nature Walks

*Dancing

Once the students are interested and excited about the learning, the work needs to continue to be purposeful and relevant.
