Without engagement, classrooms become passive places of instruction as opposed to rich learning environments. This course introduces students to multiple frameworks developed to engage and motivate the adolescent learner and asks students to apply these frameworks through weekly practicum work at an area secondary school. Specific topics of study include: Cambourne's Framework of Engagement, Partnering Pedagogy, Assessment, Classroom Management, and Lesson Study. (Spring Semester)
