When a student is removed from a lesson

Meeting 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, principal, school staff

It is directed at students aged:  12-14, 15-16

Target group: Student-centered, group-centered, class-centered

Main subjects involved: Cross-curricular

ICT involvement:  no

Description of the practice: Meeting students where they are is important – Even when things don’t go (behaviorally) as planned.

When a student is, for example, removed from a lesson, someone needs to have time to talk with him/her about the reasons why. It’s also important for students to feel and know that they can reach out to teachers and the principal for a chat if needs be. That’s why it’s paramount to build in time for meeting students into the school structure.

Accessible to any student: yes

Meaningful participation for every student: yes

Why?: Students feel they can reach out to teachers and other school staff

Support to the practice: yes
