Feedback From Principals And Teachers

“Kagan is a no-brainer – it just makes sense! I thought I was engaging kids, but nothing like how I do it now. I wish I’d come across this when I first started teaching.”

Rae, ex-principal, classroom teacher

“As a BT, I have found the Kagan Cooperative Learning structures and strategies invaluable. Kagan was an integral part of my classroom set up and gave me the skills to manage behaviour positively. The children want to learn because they find class fun and exciting. The detailed and step by step training gave me the confidence to teach in all areas cooperatively”

Leonie, PCT, Auckland

“Kagan Structures are part of every meeting – it’s a rule. At least two structures every meeting. No one wants to sit and be talked at. Meetings are about ongoing relationship development, growing people, and collaborative practice. Admin can be done through an email.”

Principal, South Auckland

“Our kids need to be confident to speak, share their ideas, and ask questions. Even learning to listen to others is a big step for some. I honestly don’t know how other schools are doing it if they aren’t using Kagan.”

Deputy Principal, South Auckland

“We have no behaviour problems – the kids practically teach themselves. That’s not to say they don’t need Kagan. Their social skills are great – as long as they’re with their friends. Put them with the ‘Special Needs’ kid, and it’s a different story. Kagan has ruined me really, as I now see engagement and classrooms through a completely different lens.”

Principal, Manawatu

“My class runs like clockwork using Kagan Management tips and has a positive and safe learning atmosphere thanks to the class and team building activities. I have really seen a difference in individual student’s behaviour and attitude towards learning. The less able feel more supported and confident and the more able feel extended. No one can hide now – they all have to contribute and participate.”

Trish, Team Leader, Auckland
