Keeping Engagement

Engagement is always a hot top in education. From upper level missions and goals, down to the minutes of each class, we all want the students to be engaged. Sometimes our activities allow easy access to engagement while others do not. Flash back three years ago when I taught two classes of grade 9 science. One was a full class of the 30 kids, many of which were very bright, while the other had 17 students, several which had learning disabilities.
