A study of engaged student behavior within classroom activities during mathematics classx
The purpose of this study was to examine student engaged and non-engaged behaviors in mathematics class within various instructional activities. Students in the third, fifth and seventh grades were observed by trained observers once each minute throughout the course of a mathematics class on five different occasions. Data indicated that third and fifth grade teachers utilized seat work a majority of the time whereas the seventh grade employed a majority of teacher-led activities. In addition, as grade level increased, student engagement decreased. © Taylor & Francis.
