ENGAGING STUDENTS IN CLASS




Just sitting quietly and taking in instruction in class are simply not enough to learn adequately. Research has demonstrated that engaging students in the learning process increases their attention and focus, motivates them to practice higher-level critical thinking skills and promotes meaningful learning experiences. Active learning requires students to participate in class. 
The teacher can make this possible by employing brief question-and-answer sessions, discussion integrated into the  lecture, impromptu writing assignments and hands-on activities. Applying these strategies with real effort on the part of the teacher, will facilitate learning and enhance retention of the material. Also, the students will thoroughly enjoy the lesson as against just sitting for hours absorbing information which soon turns out to be boring.
