8 Qualities of Engagement to Plan Your Lessons

Before I share the reason why this discovery is important to you, in a way that you may not be able to imagine yet, I just want to say that it’s my honor to show you something that really changes your life. And while I share with you the most exciting parts of this discovery, promise me that you’ll recognize that this is only a portion of what you’re going to get when you decide to confidently buy the book Class Hacker.

Teachers hear a lot about engagement. 

But what exactly is engagement?

Engagement involves:


  • Attention
  • Curiosity
  • Interest
  • Optimism
  • Passion


Engagement means you are tapping into their emotions.  And if there’s one thing you learn about the neuroscience of learning it should be this:

“Emotion drives cognition.”

Science has identified 8 qualities of engagement.

If you have at least 3 of these qualities in each assignment, students show sustained cognitive engagement

84 to 86 percent of the time!


But guess what happens if you have less?

When only two qualities were present, students were only cognitively engaged about 16 percent of the time.

Only 1 quality?

That number dropped to less than four percent.

That’s a big drop!

If only you had some way to make sure you covered these in your lessons (wink wink).

Now You Do…
