Person of the week

Each student (…)

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:  9-11, 12-14, 15-16, >16

Target group: Class-centered

Main subjects involved: Social skills

ICT involvement:  yes

Description of the practice: Each student is the person of the week in turn. He or she will get attention and have some responsibilities. He or she tells something about himself or herself in a way of his or her choice (bringing an object from home, a hobby, or even using a kahoot to tell about himself or herself).

The aim of this practice is to increase positive self-image and provide positive emotional experiences. In the classroom, we learn to get to know each other and give positive feedback.

Accessible to any student: yes

Meaningful participation for every student: yes

Why?: Everyone gets attention in a positive way.

Support to the practice: yes
