Some 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: Teacher
It is directed at students aged: 12+
Target group: Group-centered
Main subjects involved: Cross-curricular
ICT involvement: no
Description of the practice: Some students find test situations too stressful. Hence, it’s useful to demonstrate to the whole group how to cope with test situations. And, go through research results with the group about stressing in test situations. Stress can also be turned into excitement when students don’t find the test situations threatening or overbearing. This can be done by underplaying the test situation itself, and emphasising the learning aspect. For instance, by piecing tests into smaller chunks, and linking questions to their own lived experience. It’s about providing students with experiences of success.
Accessible to any student: yes
