Two Useful Project Ideas you can use now in your Classroom for Student Engagement

Student Engagement in the classroom is a hot topic among teachers as the internet abounds with tips and strategies for student engagement. Today we are going to take a look at project-based learning ideas and share resources to use in the classroom with your students.

  1. Language learning activities – for ESL students. These activities can help English language learners in your classroom to use the language in more meaningful ways and alleviate some of the pressure they might feel in the classroom. http://digitalis.nwp.org/collection/english-language-learners-digital-tools

Great ideas! 

I had a friend who made a made the class re-enact a famous (short) play - only the dialogues had been revamped by the students themselves (with a dash of humor!)

Being a dissertation help tutor, it helps to make use of such ideas and to create something new from the idea which is already been talked about.

Guest speakers are also great for incorporating civics and government. There are lots of local officials (city council, mayor, freeholders) who would be happy to stop by and speak to your students for a bit. You can ask them about their day job (since most are part time) as well as their official government responsibilities.
