Everyone Wins When Students Choose!

Everyone Wins When Students Choose!

The Title I building where I work set a school-wide goal to increase student motivation and engagement. We hope that improving grades and content retention will decrease the learning gap revealed by state and national tests. As part of our Title I training, we were given Eric Jensen’s book “Engaging Students with Poverty in Mind.” We were instructed to meet in groups of 4-6 teachers, once a month, to read, answer specific questions, discuss, and record our responses.
