Engaging academics are one of the four domains of the Responsive Classroom approach. Engaging academics consist of the practices teachers use to design and deliver high-quality, rigorous, and engaging instruction.

Teachers make academics engaging when they make sure learning is pedagogically sound with a lesson design that allows for the natural learning cycle, design lessons around learning objectives so learning is purposeful and meaningful, and set high expectations for students by continuously and appropriately challenging students.

Associated practices include Academic Choice, interactive learning structures, and positive teacher language.
