Presented by Tina H. Boogren, Ph. D., Marzano Research Laboratory

Research has clearly shown that student engagement happens as a result of a teacher’s careful planning and execution of specific strategies. This basic premise drives Dr. Boogren’s Level II Workshop, Becoming a Reflective Teacher in a Highly Engaged Classroom, which features advanced strategies for increasing student engagement and reflecting on practices related to engagement in the classroom. Participants will leave this highly interactive workshop with specific strategies and action steps that can be used to create and reflect upon a classroom environment where engagement is the norm, not the exception.

Learning outcomes
Participants will:

  • Execute specific strategies to engage students throughout their learning.
  • Deepen their understanding of four questions that must be answered positively, in order to create an environment where student engagement levels are high.
  • Improve practice through the reflection process.
  • Articulate growth goals around student engagement.
  • Pursue growth goals with focused reflection strategies, including engaging in focused practice, receiving focused feedback, and observing and discussing teaching.


Please note: This workshop builds on the previous workshops Tina has presented, and the books Becoming a Reflective Teacher and author of In the First Few Years: Reflections of a Beginning Teacher and Supporting Beginning Teachers.

Intended Audience:

  • Q-Comp instructional coaches and other peer reviewers
