Student Engagement — A Strategy Brief

from University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Student engagement is the umbrella goal of this project. "[Student] engagement involves positive student behaviors, such as attendance, paying attention, and participation in class, as well as the psychological experience of identification with school and feeling that one is cared for, respected, and part of the school environment” (Anderson, Christenson, Sinclair, & Lehr, 2004, p.97). Student engagement is a complex term with many definitions, making it all the more difficult to understand. By understanding and promoting student engagement, schools can actively work to increase the engagement of their students, and thus their school success. An important benefit of student engagement is that students who are engaged in school are less likely to fall victim to potential adolescent troubles. One way that educators can proactively work to increase student engagement is to increase teacher support and engagement in their respective classrooms.
