  • Michale Fullan, Author of “Leading in a Culture of Change”In an educational environment fraught with federal and state mandates, high-stakes testing, overcrowded classrooms, and dense curriculum, taking the time to engage every student in learning might seem impossible.

In this groundbreaking new book, Releah Lent describes these conditions and what they look like in practice.

“Engaging Adolescent Learners” is both a practical resource and an ideal tool for professional development. Using Brian Cambourne's Conditions of Learning as her framework, Lent invites you to assess your learning, your practice, and your beliefs about key aspects of student motivation: Does the amount of responsibility you extend to students match your expectations for them?Do you offer adolescents supportive feedback?Do you give students sufficient opportunities to use their newfound knowledge and skills?Then Lent offers specific suggestions for tailoring your classroom practices to the motivational needs of each and every learner. She provides resources such as example activities for your classroom, study-group questions for ongoing professional reflection, and ideas for action research and coaching to improve your understanding of engagement.Examine what it means to engage young adults in their learning and find out what classrooms with engaged students look, sound, and feel like. Let Releah Lent help you transform your classrooms into places where students have the freedom to satisfy their natural inclination to explore. With “Engaging Adolescent Learners” at your side, you'll have everything you need to help even the most reluctant students find a way to learn that works for them.
