The relationship between active student engagement (e.g., asking and answering questions, writing, discussing, and debating) in class and learning is one of the most robust and consistent empirical findings in educational research over the past four decades (Heward & Wood, 2015). Yet, it is not easy to engage all students particularly during small and large group instruction. This session will teach participants how to utilize peer-assisted strategies to engage all learners.
