Recently, my partners and I (Daniella), interviewed Ms. Schatz (3-410) on how she engages her class. She replied with, "When I plan a lesson, I think of

the many points of curiosity that will engage students about the content that we are learning. One of the things I look for is what will pique the children's interests. How I do this is that I gather all the information I have, and I try to intellectually engage the students." The advice that Ms. Schatz gives her colleagues regarding planning and preparation for engagement, is that when she reacts to something or gets excited, her students do too. Also, in class, she likes to find sources other than the textbooks. She likes to engage her students by using videos, the smart board, and tutorials. Last but not least, Ms. Schatz also motivates her students by beginning the lesson with a story that relates to real life. She also puts her students in pairs, and she groups the students up by putting together students who are a little confused, with a student who can teach and help them with the lesson. Overall, we think Ms. Schatz is a great teacher and totally engages her students!!
