Increasing Engagement and Learning Through Interactive Instruction by Chuck Keller    

If you want an athlete to stay engaged in practice, they need to get a lot of touches. "Touches," for those less than athletically inclined out there, refers to contact with the ball/puck/whatever. You need to scoop a grounder, take a face off, catch a pass, throw a pass, rip a shot, save a shot. You need the ball/puck/thing around you to stay engaged. In the classroom, we see the same thing. The traditional "direct instruction" lecture, where I stand in the front of the room and grace my students with a 45-minute monologue that demonstrates my mastery of the content yields very few touches. Students sit in a passive state. Only the most motivated will stay engaged and learn.
