The students (…)
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, tutors, youth workers, youth outreach workers and other possible collaborators.
It is directed at students aged: 16+
Target group: Group-centered, local approach
Main subjects involved: Social skills, cross-curricular
ICT involvement: no
Description of the practice: The students spend the afternoon together getting to know each other and working around a variety of activity stations. The activity groups are led by tutors, physical education teachers, group leaders, youth workers, youth outreach and the school psychologist & curator.
The day is very relaxed and everyone participates at their own level. Through this activity it is easier for the students to take contact with various student support services.
Accessible to any student: yes
Meaningful participation for every student: no
Why?: If a student is away from school that day.
Support to the practice: yes
