Secondary Block Scheduling, Day 1

Kagan Structures for Greater Motivation and Learning

February 17, 2024 in Las Vegas, Nevada

(For Educators of Grades 6-12)
Workshop #38678

Block scheduling creates longer class periods. The idea is longer periods allow teachers to create greater student engagement and deeper dives into the curriculum. However, longer classes can feel like they drag on forever. Students can lose interest and disengage. Many teachers try group work that we know just doesn't work. That's where Kagan Structures come in! Kagan Structures are cooperative, interactive teaching strategies that boost student motivation, engagement, and learning. Students work in pairs and teams. Students get to do what they most crave — interact with their peers! The structures transform the desire for social interaction into deeper student learning. Learn structures to break up long lectures, for relationship building, and to replace isolating individual assignments. Come learn research-based strategies that side-step the group work pitfalls. Come learn how to keep students motivated and engaged for the entire block.
