Student Engagement Techniques
This book provides professors and their graduate teaching assistantsâthose at the front line of interactions with studentsâwith techniques and approaches they can use in class to help at-risk students raise their skills so that they can successfully complete their studies.
The author shares proven practices that will not only engage all students in a class, but also create the conditionsâwhile maintaining high standards and high expectationsâto enable at-risk and under-prepared students to develop academically and graduate with good grades. The author also explains how to work effectively with academic support units on campus.
Within the framework of identifying those students who need help, establishing a rapport with them, adopting inclusive teaching strategies, and offering appropriate guidance, the book presents the theory teachers will need, and effective classroom strategies.
The author covers teaching philosophy and goals; issues of discipline and behavior; motivation and making expectations explicit; classroom climate and learning styles; developing time management and study skills; as well as the application of âuniversal designâ strategies.
The ideas presented hereâthat the author has successfully employed over many yearsâcan be easily integrated into any class.
About: As societal expectations about attending college have grown, professors report increasing numbers of students who are unprepared for the rigors of postsecondary educationânot just more students with learning disabilities (whose numbers have more than tripled), but students (with and without special admission status) who are academically at-risk because of inadequate reading, writing and study skills.
