This paper analyzes how Cliff’s Abeng demonstrates the engaged learning principles in the classroom setting. Why would you want to learn something you have no interest in? Students' connections to what they are learning are incredibly important. Students need a reason to feel connected in order to learn well. Abeng’s text reveals the damage that can occur when this connection is missing.
