Engagement. . . .Accountability. . .Retention. . .Learning happens when these three words are part of the classroom experience. In order to learn, students must be engaged in the learning process. This means that a student needs to put aside distractions and focus on the material at hand. Once engaged in the material, the student then needs to hold him or herself accountable: a student's work needs to be of the best quality and due dates must be adhered to. Once a skill is learned, the goal is to retain that skill. Review of material will be ongoing throughout the year, offering the support needed to retain the material.
