Engaged Teaching: “Do Now” Activities for Your Lessons
Engaged teaching is a movement where educators partners with their students and uses interactive and engaging activities to engage students in learning. There are various do now activities which can be used in order to engage students in learning.
One such activity is creating posters which students can take home with them after class. Poster creation can provide students with opportunities to share their interests and thoughts about the class, as well as discuss any changes or updates to the course material. Poster creation can also be used as a way for educators to connect with their students and provide feedback on their projects.
Another do now activity which educators can use is playing games. Games can be used as a way to engage students in learning and provide different opportunities for students to receive feedback from their educators. Games can also be used as a way to provide students with opportunities to build skills which they can use in the future.
Lastly, educators can use creative ways to engage students in learning and provide opportunities for students to communicate their thoughts and feelings about the class. One way to do this is by using role-playing games. Role-playing games can also be used to provide students with opportunities to explore their emotions and personalities.
