Engaged Classrooms: The Art and Craft of Reaching and Teaching All Learners


Supporting Middle and High School Students’ Academic Achievement and Social-Emotional Learning and Development

Engaged Classrooms, by Carol Miller Lieber, Michele Tissiere, Sarah Bialek, and Donna Mehle, with a foreword by Sonia Nieto, presents a compelling set of evidence-based strategies that support equity-centered classrooms. These discrete and interrelated strategies foster caring, high-performing classroom communities. They also strengthen the social, emotional, and learning competencies that are linked to increases in academic engagement and achievement, and are essential to success in school, work, and life.

I wish Engaged Classrooms had been around when I walked into my first teaching job some 50 years ago. It would have saved me countless hours of frustration, indecision, even heartache. Fortunately for new teachers today – and even for seasoned veterans – it is a goldmine of insights and strategies that they will come back to again and again.

Yet another great book by Engaging Schools. Engaged Classrooms is filled with strategies to reach all of today’s learners, including our most disengaged youth. It’s a guide to everyday instruction from how to begin your year to how to support students with complex social, emotional, and learning needs. This is a must-read for all educators.
