Boosting student engagement using the 4Cs of education

Here’s a story I don’t tell very often. I spent the better part of 8th grade being uninterested in school – although school is all I did. Let me explain. I was present, I did my homework, studied very hard for my finals, yet I did not raise my hand to answer questions in class. I did not like to interact much even when concepts were hard to understand. I used to sneak a library book during Chemistry and other classes that were less appealing to me.

The truth is: I was not engaged in the classroom.

It is hard to say that since I got good grades. The actual outcomes, what I was supposed to learn back then, are a bit blurry to be honest. I was one of those students that were engaged on the surface, appeared to be listening, did not skip class, but learned little and has had to catch up later. High School chemistry did not turn out to be a walk in the park either.
