Looking for student engagement tips?
No one can use too many student engagement tips. That's why I knew I had to share this awesome infographic I found on Twitter with all of you.

MindShift posted an infographic on the “6 Golden Rules for Engaging Students” on their Twitter account. The graphic was created by the one and only Sylvia Duckworth, based on ideas from Nicolas Pino James. You can see that infographic below.
All six of these golden rules are excellent by themselves, but they have a re-occurring theme that links them together. Most of the rules on the infographic are about students and teachers establishing meaningful relationships. As the facilitator of their learning, it is important that you make sure your students know they can come to you for help, but not to do their work for them and that you care about them and not just their grades.
