Summary

Research shows numerous positive correlations between academic achievement and student engagement when using strategies that target engagement. The K20 Center uses an instrument (https://kissce.k20center.ou.edu/) built from this research to facilitate reflective, data-driven action research to increase student engagement in its partner schools. These four sessions are designed to focus on foundational knowledge and strategies that promote student engagement in schools. Each session follows a similar format. Participants will access prior knowledge and address misconceptions about student engagement through a Mentimeter poll. Next, participants will use a graphic organizer to visualize connections to the research on student engagement. Finally, participants will analyze engagement scenarios in small groups and collaboratively design research-based interventions within the engagement area of focus.
