I recently ran a competition for our Student Engagement Formula. Entrants had to leave their favourite student engagement strategies in the comment box below to win full access to our comprehensive system for encouraging student motivation and improving student engagement. As you can see, there are some BRILLIANT ideas and although the competition is now closed, you can still benefit from all the submissions. Or, if you want to join in the fun, feel free to add your own favourite strategy for getting students engaged in your lessons. It could be a starter activity you use to get students to buy-in to your lesson, a simple attention-grabber, a questioning technique, a group activity, a demonstration, a routine you've established etc. etc.
If you want to get EVEN more ideas for improving student engagement you might be interested in our Student Engagement Formula - a complete system for getting 'buy-in' at the start of lessons and maintaining participation throughout - here's the link.
