Focusing on the Bigger Picture

As teachers, we all know the importance of effective classroom management. From sharpening pencils to redirecting behavior, we need to have a plan. That being said, I agree that management is just the first step to creating a learning environment, and that we should be more focused on increasing student engagement. Students that are engaged are learning and on task. You have offered excellent suggestions for increasing engagement. I really like the idea of collaborating with classrooms around the world to solve problems. I can see this a highly motivational, and it will broaden students' world perspective. Great way for them to challenge their ideas.

I really enjoyed this post! I am a firm believer of no management no engagement. I totally support the integration of technology in the classroom and transition of traditional teaching methods, however some things just can't change. There is no way the education process can take place if there is no management. The strategies addressed in this blog seem very beneficial.

If you have not yet read Daniel's book DRIVE, I'd encourage you to do so. When I read it and wrote a book review (http://www.nyjournalofbooks.com/review/drive-surprising-truth-about-what...) I was quite impressed with how it aligned with the research of Dr. John Guthrie's work on student engagement. If no one has read his research on intrensic and extrensic motivation, I'd highly recommend it to go along with this article.
