Ready to engage Veteran adult educator Kitty Head uses an array of ways to get students engaged with each other and the subject matter. Her efforts have earned her COABE Teacher of the Year, the Wellcare Community Hero, and Hilliard Lyons University of Louisville Teacher of Excellence. Here are some of her best tips:

Celebrate life victories

Use impromptu celebrations

It’s one student’s birthday, today is important within a student’s culture, one solved a complex math problem, another earned a GED® credential. These are all openings to build community.

Often celebrations cannot be planned. Everyday victories come out during class discussions. That’s when Head stops and spotlights the individual, offering praise and support and attention—rare commodities in most students’ lives.

Celebrate students’ cultures by developing social studies lesson plans around a student’s home country. This gives the lesson a real-life application. “When students feel like a part of the lesson, they take ownership of it,” Head says. “By relating the subject matter to something the students face in their lives, they see the value and are better engaged.”

Bring the workplace to the classroom Use examples from students’ jobs to highlight the importance of writing skills and correct grammar usage. Jobs in carpentry and mechanics offer a chance to formulate math lessons. Everyday needs such as purchasing a car or buying groceries become a way to show students how to calculate interest payments or use percentages to take advantage of sales.
