Understanding Your Framework: Engagement

This course is designed to build your understanding of the attributes/indicators of your framework related to cognitive engagement by exploring the overarching intent, the key levers between ratings, and the associated teacher and student behaviors and actions of the indicator. The final module will provide general strategies to improve practice to the “proficient” level and beyond.



This course is designed to build your understanding of the attributes, indicators, or standards, in your instructional framework related to engagement. The course can be completed at your own pace and is designed for approximately 4 hours of instructional time. It is important to know that developing a deep understanding takes time.
