Strategies for Student Engagement

3 PD Hours

  • 1 Identify and implement instructional strategies to boost student engagement throughout the class period from bell to bell.

  • 2 Utilize a variety of teaching tools to promote individual and collaborative engagement and reflection.

  • 3 Plan purposeful strategies throughout lessons to check for understanding, offer student choice, and support retention and application of learning.

Engaging students in artmaking is often everyone’s favorite part of art class. Keeping students interested and actively participating throughout, on the other hand, can sometimes be a challenge, especially when making may or may not be the lesson’s focus. Not only do we want to set our students up for success in artmaking, but we also want them to grasp context while making educational and personal connections. Join Chelsea Fleming in this PRO Pack as she shares engagement ideas for everything from getting students started right off the bat to keeping them with you during direct instruction, touching base and keeping engaged throughout artmaking, and wrapping lessons up powerfully and purposefully.
