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.
