DeWitt describes student engagement as, “how our students feel supported when they enter our doors, and how they feel challenged by what we teach. It means that we know their names when they attend our classes, and it means we encourage them to take a risk and try out for a team sport, band or chorus, or the drama club” (1). You developed a social-emotional learning plan or emotional intelligence approach for your selected school or school district in the Week 7 activity. In this assignment, you will expound on important factors that impact student engagement.
Use the SEL plan that you developed in Week 7 for this assignment. Use the textbook and other course materials to complete this assignment.
- Compare and contrast the social-emotional-learning plan or emotional intelligence approach that you developed in Week 7 with the current student engagement approach of another model of school organization. DeWitt explains that different terms have been used to describe “student engagement.” Before researching another school model, review the terms and components of this concept that are used on page 51 of the text.
- Identify which factors in your SEL plan mitigate for the potential impact of economic and social factors for your selected school.
- Use three sources (no more than five years old) to support your writing. One source must be from the textbook. Choose sources that are credible, relevant, and appropriate. Cite each source listed on your source page at least one time within your assignment. For help with research, writing, and citation, access the library or review library guides.
