Resources for Enhancing Engagement

The teacher works with others to create a positive and safe learning environment for all. The instructor models and requires positive, respectful social interaction and clearly communicates academic expectations: homework is clearly relevant and at the appropriate level of difficulty; formative and summative assessments are designed to promote the students’ ability to communicate what they have learned. The instructor connects course content to students’ prior knowledge and extends and refines students’ knowledge through authentic tasks, such as complex problem solving, critical discourse and civic activism.
