This manual and paper explore the question of how educators can heighten their awareness of body language, facial expression, and eye gaze to better understand their student’s levels of engagement. Through the examination of pre-existing research in the fields of education and neuroscience, this paper identifies physical signals that may indicate a student’s cognitive engagement in the classroom. A manual has been created in order to further educate future and current educators on these factors with limitations and a need to further research on the topic.
