Mark- Promoting Student Engagement is a very thoughtful and substantive blog written by Eric Williams, the Superintendent of York County Public Schools in Virginia. The blog focuses on exploring multiple ways to engage students in their learning. He often shares examples from his schools and connects these with larger trends in education. Eric is also a great follow on Twitter (@ewilliams65) where he tweets frequently about what he sees as he’s out and about in schools.
