Student Engagement Strategies to Support Growth Mindsets and Increase Learner Autonomy

Adopted by educators worldwide, the Unstoppable Learning model includes seven elements of teaching and learning: (1) planning, (2) launching, (3) consolidating, (4) assessing, (5) adapting, (6) managing, and (7) leading. This book offers strategies for launching (introducing content and hooking students) and consolidating (facilitating students’ comprehension) to help readers cultivate and increase meaningful, student-centered learning.

Learn classroom management strategies to support students’ mindsets for engagement and their need for autonomy:

  • Become familiar with the student engagement mindset continuum and gain classroom management strategies that help establish a growth mindset for students.
  • Understand the theories of self-determination, participation, and motivation for students.
  • Consider differentiated instruction and classroom scenarios that increase participation and intrinsic motivation for students during a lesson launch.
  • Boost competency and learning consolidation by tapping into student engagement strategies designed specifically for different kinds of students.
  • Learn how to monitor bias, which can negatively affect motivation for students who are struggling.
  • Focus on student-centered learning to help students relate to content, and learn when and where to differentiate instruction to provide more learner autonomy.
