Unpacking Engagement

This week was a new beginning for me; I was excited for the arrival of a new semester and for the opportunity to work with 29 prospective teaching candidates.  I was especially excited to begin our work together with lessons were designed to help all of us think about ENGAGEMENT of the LEARNERS and to more specifically allow us to ponder the concept of CURRICULUM DIFFERENTIATION as a strategy for enhancing the level of engagement in a classroom.  I am incredibly challenged right now to learn more about teaching - and about renewing my teaching in ways that are more student centered and also more centered on individual learners as opposed to being centered on the entire group.  This promises to be a challenging journey.  What are the most important things for me to remember?

    definitely be planning to make it special and memorable by keeping a good
    theme, ordering the best food and choosing the best games. The decline of the East side blues scene
