Teaching student engagement strategies for writing clearly and meaningfully goes a long way toward ensuring teachers and students are really “hearing” each other.
As students begin using critical-thinking writing strategies, instead of a multiple-choice model that has been imprinted on their minds, we need an equally concrete and specific structure for them to embrace.
No matter how much we hope for continuous improvement in student performance, there will always be some ebb and flow in student motivation. Learn a new routine that discourages procrastination.
Teachers deal with their anxiety by embracing the new freedoms that come with online learning. The recommendation to streamline and simplify lessons to keep students engaged online can apply to our virtual classroom management.
