Our Asset focus this week, is Asset number 22, School Engagement.
This Asset demonstrates that a young person is actively engaged in learning.
Our data shows that in 2009, students in sixth through 12th grade reported that 57 percent felt they had this Asset in their lives.
The 2013 data shows that number had risen to 60 percent.
While I believe there are no huge observations in why the number has risen, like many of the other Assets, this one is another that can be influenced by discussion.
We need to take time to talk about the school day. While I understand that not every day is a dinner around the table affair, you have to make sure some days turn out that way.
At the elementary level, the discussion is much easier, when you can ask about what they learned that day, what special they had and what they did there.
Have students share what library books they checked out, teach you the game they played at recess or display their recent art project somewhere in the home for the week.
Middle school will be a huge topic of discussion over the next few weeks. There will be new classrooms, sites, sounds and lots to learn in the new building. Make sure you ask something, anything, even if you seem to annoy them.
