When students walk into a classroom, often the first question is, "What are we going to do today?" It is easy for educators to fall into the trap of using activities exclusively without considering the value or intent of the content. After all, the students are engaged, and if they are busy they must be learning. Simply being busy, however, does not always equate to learning; a balanced approach of standards-based instruction along with engaging activities is needed. Educators need to consider the desired learning objective(s) and how student learning will be evaluated and implemented. This can be paired with making the activity fun, engaging, and appealing to the students. Implementing activities can be considered a multi-pronged process. This article provides a list of 10 suggestions for classroom procedures and considerations teachers can use to help themselves in the process of planning and implementing engaging, student activities.
