Following the success of Play Matters - with its action-based focus on Australia's Preschool to Grade 2 - authors Kathy Walker and Shona Bass have developed the next stage of the 'Walker Learning Approach'/Australian Developmental Curriculum, for implementation with primary school students from Grades 3 to Grade 6. Engagement Matters provides a step-by-step, practical guide for teachers that emphasizes student engagement, empowerment, and achievement, and importantly, personalized learning. The transition from Grade 2 into the middle and upper primary years is made seamless through the provision of tips, activities, and explanatory theory. The processes and tools outlined in this informative and inspiring resource will equip schools with the capacity to actively engage students in their learning across all subject areas and in diverse learning contexts. In so doing, Engagement Matters effectively lays the foundations for ongoing engagement and successful learning throughout school life and beyond.
