Sticky teaching looks at "understanding what the brain can't ignore." In this post there is an explanation of six strategies of sticky teaching.

1. Awaken the intrigue.

2. Begin and end often.

3. Create lots of contrast.

4. Draw them in with stories.

5. Emotion draws attention.

6. Focus on the big idea.

Each of these ideas is discussed in the post.

There is also an embedded slideshare in the post. It provides some interesting statistics and explains why each of these strategies work.

As I become a better facilitator it is important to find engaging, effective and efficient methods and strategies within the classrooms of our children; as well as for all adults attending brick & mortor or  online colleges. Bloom's Taxonomy is an essential tool!
