Project Description

There is a widely held view that many students in the middle years (ages 10 to 14) are disengaged from school and education. This project seeks to identify key factors that influence student learning and engagement in these school years and to evaluate teaching interventions that improve engagement, learning and achievement. The proposed project tests the proposition that crucial elements in engaging middle year students include their future aspirations and their sense of capacity to influence their own outcomes, and will develop and evaluate interventions desgined to connect school experience with students' percieved futures, and to enhance students' self-regulation of their learning.
