Description Eugene, OR : ERIC Clearinghouse on Educational Management, 1996 
9 p. 

In this issue, two teachers and a principal offer their perspective on classroom practices that can enhance students' learning experiences and keep them motivated and engaged. Ted Nussbaum, a primary teacher at a Eugene, Oregon, school serving primarily at-risk students, shows his enthusiasm and excitement at his students' learning progress, sets high learning goals, lets students exercise choice and responsibility, emphasizes the positive, uses cooperative learning, provides encouragement, and views discipline as a teaching opportunity. Cindy Boyd, a high school math teacher in Abilene, Texas, creates a risk-taking atmosphere; plans activity-based, student-centered lessons; uses auxiliary items to illustrate concepts; employs alternative assessment; quells math anxiety; and values attitude, positive feedback, real-life applications, lifelong learning, and caring relationships. Howard Pitler, principal of a Wichita, Kansas, magnet school, relies on authentic tasks, genuine caring, staff camaraderie, high standards and individualized student goals, lifelong learning, cooperative learning, and student-led conferences to engage students.
