As an editor of the high school newspaper, the editor-in-chief of the high school literary magazine, and a college journalism major, I have clearly always been someone who doesn’t mind writing a research paper or an essay. In fact, I welcomed these assignments when I was still in school. I would pick a 10-page essay over a math test literally any day of the week. I’m a fast writer and I managed to get good grades on my papers even when I admittedly didn’t try very hard.

How can you Measure Student Engagement? Have you ever wondered if your students are engaged in their learning?  I have often wondered this and wondered how I could measure it.  So, some colleagues and I have come up with what is called the "ENGAGEMENT WHEEL."   It is a way to reflect on an hour of your day that you have taught and try to give it an ENGAGEMENT score.  The higher the score the more engaged your class was.  The engagement wheel measures what your students are doing.
