Two teachers in (…)
Here is another example of an engaging practice that, from a professional experience, fosters students’ SCHOOL ENGAGEMENT. By school engagement we mean students’ observable participation in school activities, sense of belonging to classmates and teachers, and valuing success in school-related goals.
It is implemented by: Teachers
It is directed at students aged: 12-16
Target group: Class-centred
Main subjects involved: Languages, socials science and maths
ICT involvement: yes
Description of the practice: It consists of having two teachers in the classroom
Accessible to any student: yes, because the cooperative group methodology was used, where the work of each of the students was key to achieving the final result.
Meaningful participation for every student: yes
Why? Since, as I said before, the cooperative methodology was used and there was also co-teaching in the classroom. The subject teacher supported the students according to the content to be worked on and the counselor was in charge of each one carrying out their cooperative role and encouraging participation.
Support to the practice: Yes, we received it, since we carried out co-teaching. We received training on the subject.
Does this practice promote students observable participation in school related activities? Yes, since it was about the ODS and other areas are also being worked on.
Does the practice promote students sense of belonging to classmates, teachers and school? Yes, since we are all pursuing the same ODS goals in some way.
Does the practice promote students giving value to success in school-related goals? Yes, since I think that the methodology used motivates students to pursue success for the group and, indirectly, individual success.
