Should you give your students another assessment or worksheet from the textbook? Why aren’t your students engaged in your classroom? Traditional instruction may not be enough for our 21st century students to be fully engaged, take ownership of their work, and activate their higher-order thinking skills. Active learning, through performance-based learning and assessment, is something that any teacher can implement in their own classroom with just a little planning, preparation, and progress monitoring.
