Reviewer Comments:

This resource gives teachers, students and parents specific ways to increase students engagement in learning. Some of them are obvious, but many will enlighten even the most experienced teacher. It would be great if more members added to this list. This resource can also be found as part of a new teacher collection.

I loved this! It made me think about a lot and what I want to incorporate in my classroom. What really stuck out to me was "Remove erasers: time spent erasing is time lost exploring creative ideas." It made me really think what was the author's reasoning for adding this to the list. I believe it so students can embrace mistakes, learn from them and move.
