If you or your school are working to boost student engagement, here’s one easy tip you can use immediately.

It won’t cost you money or much time.

Plus, it will limit the number of times you need to repeat yourself throughout any learning session.

MAKE YOUR DIRECTIONS VISIBLE

Here’s how it works:

1.  Preparation
During your preparation process, determine all the directions you’re going to give during the class session.

2.  Use PowerPoint
Add these directions to the appropriate PowerPoint slides.

3.  Add a picture
Include a picture that represents the directions. This is a great way to make your directions visible!

4.  Have them read it
During the class session, have all your students read the directions out loud as a group

It’s that’s easy!

Engagement can get interrupted if students are confused or unclear about what we’re asking them to do. Making your directions visible gives everyone the opportunity to stay engaged throughout the lesson. 

I’m cheering you on, William!
