The volume is divided into four parts. Part I focuses on conceptualizations of engagement, theoretical underpinnings, and the importance of engagement in structured activities for development and well-being. Part II discusses processes of engagement and the influence that teachers and staff can exert directly through the quality of discourse and interactions in school contexts. Parts III and IV focus on contexts that are empirically supported as engaging, providing the evidence of elevated engagement as well as rich descriptions of the programmatic features or practices most responsible for them. Specifically, Part III provides several portraits of engaging learning environments both in academic classes and in less formal, out-of-school-time settings. Part IV presents several whole-school approaches to education that constitute a significant departure from mainstream public education.
