My Top Ten List to Engage ALL Students!
- Cooperative Learning Groups
- Brain Breaks
- Token Economy
- Model, Model, and Model desired Academic Behaviors!!!
- 75% 25% Rule Academic 75%/Enrichment 25%
- Beg, Beg and Beg Students to Ask Questions and Engage with the Learning!!! "My Special education teacher told me, "stupid people don't ask questions and dumb people don't ask for help"
- Get everyone involved with the goal of engaging the student! Calls home, parent conference, letters home, and positive administrative contact. This is virtually impossible in many schools.
- More Bribes! Teachers helper, Class Runner, Snack Helper, Safety Patrol, Free Time, and Yes CANDY!
- Close the Learning Gap! Students shut down very fast when they are socially promoted and have a 2-7 year instructional deficit!
- Get Tough!
The Amazing Bill Cosby has the Solution!
