Master teacher and education consultant Patricia Vitale-Reilly has a deep understanding of what engagement strategies look like and how to integrate them into classroom practice. "Regardless of age, grade level, geographic location, type of school, discipline, or curriculum, " she writes, "A student needs to be engaged in his or her learning in order to excel and succeed." In Engaging Every Learner, Patricia applies the research on motivation and engagement to strategies and tools that cultivate and sustain student engagement across the school year. She suggests a sequence for implementing the principles of teaching that lead to engaged classrooms, including:

  • Creating physical, emotional, and cognitive classroom environments for optimal learning
  • Building meaningful classroom structure through whole class, small group, and independent instruction
  • Applying the principles of choice to content, process, and product
  • Connecting students to the world around them through popular culture, technology, and the community.

A wealth of classroom anecdotes, examples, and practical tips are woven throughout each chapter to illustrate Patricia's strategies. If you're looking for ways to make students real partners in their learning, try Engaging Every Learner and watch kids thrive.
