When you think back to when you were last fully engaged in something, so consumed that you lost track of all time and your surroundings, can you remember what that time was like? As Ellin Keene writes, “when engaged, we enter into a state of wideawakeness that is almost blissful.” She says this feeling is intoxicating. How can our students find this deep engagement on their own? In her newest book, Engaging Children, Ellin explores that very idea. She examines the conditions that lead to engagement and how we can promote student-driven engagement.

Ellin joins us on on Facebook for our Book Talk Live:
