Engagement is an important factor in achievement. No matter how well organized the lesson is, students learn best when engaged. Teachers must utilize many avenues to learning, and must have a “bag of tricks” to differentiate instruction and reach all learners. This fast-paced webinar will provide activities to implement in your classroom as students respond to fiction and non-fiction, learn new vocabulary, and develop speaking and listening skills. All activities require students to be actively engaged in the learning process. And if you teach students who are having difficulty achieving success, you will gather some new ideas to assist these students and help them compensate for their deficiencies. Student engagement is the key to success in school classrooms. All activities presented support RTI Tier II instruction and are aligned to the Common Core State Standards.
