I think @SeanNash hits the nail on the head with his comment. You must show teachers how these tools solve a problem they already have. I think @Carolyn Foote makes several important points as well about getting to the heart of the problem and getting teachers who are already in the classroom motivated to change. Student engagement is a huge "buzzword" in preservice training. Give and show examples of classrooms where all kids engaged! Many of the teachers I work with see anything new as a "OH, and you want me to do this, too?" instead of, here's how you can engage those very students who are driving you nuts( of course you might want to leave out that it's because they continue to teach the way they did 20 yrs ago). Thanks for the food for thought.
