Engaging Students: The Next Level of Working on the WorkIncreasing Engagement
In Phillip Schlechty's best-selling book Working on the Work, he outlined a motivational framework for improving student performance by improving the quality of the work teachers design for students. Engaging Students offers a next-step resource in which Schlechty incorporates what he's learned from the field and from the hundreds of workshops he and the Schlechty Center staff have conducted since Working on the Work was first published.
If you order Engaging Students directly from the Center, you will be e-mailed a free electronic study guide.
Our study guide is designed to enable readers to customize discussions and other activities for each chapter so that the ideas and strategies connect with their unique experiences and context. Both the book and the study guide will provide valuable support for School Design Teams, District Design Teams, professional learning communities, and other teams that support professional learning.
