What did you do in school today? Transforming classrooms through social, academic and intellectual engagement

Are students just ‘doing’ school or are they engaged with their studies? How does a student’s level of engagement influence learning, achievement, and teaching? Since 2007, the Canadian Education Association’s (CEA) initiative on student engagement, entitled What did you do in school today?, has shed light on such questions through survey results from over 60,000 students. The latest series of What did you do in school today? reports focus on student engagement, academic outcomes, instructional challenge, and intellectual engagement.

Willms, D., Friesen, S. & Milton, P. (2009). What did you do in school today? Transforming classrooms through social, academic and intellectual engagement. Full first year report will be available in April 2009. Summary of full report is available at Canadian Education Association
