I have had numerous requests to create a pack that includes all of the ideas that I talk about in my workshop “Setting the Stage to Engage” where I detail specific lessons and ideas that help you teach outside the box. So that is exactly what you will find in this resource. If you have followed my blog or my shop for any period of time, you will know how passionate I am about teaching in ways that will have my students soaking up the knowledge and dying to know more. This packet is not a collection of printables, but rather a collection of ideas that you can integrate into your own lessons and instruction to amplify the level of engagement in your classroom.
I hope these ideas can empower you, can inspire you, and can help you create lessons like your kids have never seen before. Is it a little more work than the average worksheet? Of course! But the payout? Stronger work ethic, a significant reduction in behavior management issues, and higher quality work. I can’t even tell you how many teachers would constantly question how I was able to get my students to accomplish so many tasks in such a short amount of time. Well, since I couldn’t ever get my magical powers to kick in, I relied heavily on some educational magic…ENGAGEMENT!
