Accessing Students' Reasoning for Disengagement
Deed, Craig
International Journal on School Disaffection, v8 n2 p24-28 2011
This paper examines what students can tell us about their strategic decision to engage or disengage from learning. A means of accessing student knowledge and experience about teaching and learning is explicated, along with a discussion of student reasoning for making an investment in learning. It is argued that disengagement is a reasoned decision based on questions of relevance, usefulness and student capacity to be successful. (Contains 2 tables.)
