Abstract

Shoulders and Krei (2015) conducted a study which revealed that for teachers to be effective in their role, students must be engaged in their learning. The purpose of this study is to examine the effects classroom engagement strategies have on student behavior. There will be three engagement strategies implemented throughout this study, these include turn and talks, cold calling, and Whole Brain Teaching strategies. Behaviors that will be analyzed include on-task versus off-task behavior and overall student participation. The participants in this research project include middle school students, 6th through 8th grade. The sample group will consist of 24 students. The academic content area being addressed is mathematics, specifically math intervention. The study will take place during the student’s scheduled class time. Direct observations and video recordings will be conducted and analyzed; the video recordings will be stored in a locked filing cabinet in the co- investigator’s office.
