      Great idea Katie, teachers would get so much out of hearing the students' perspective on what engages them. It would be good to try to get examples from all the different subject areas so that every teacher could identify with a lesson.

        Lauren- That's a great point that all teachers should see their grade/subject represented because the last thing you'd want is one teacher to say, "Well all those lessons are about engagement in [insert subject] but we can't do that in [insert subject]." Engagement isn't about the subject matter. It's about the skill of the teacher in making curriculum relevant.
