25 Tricks To Improve A Boring Lesson For Improved Student Engagement

25 Tricks To Improve A Boring Lesson For Improved Student Engagement | education-tech | Scoop.it

"Over the years, I’ve noticed how one question can change the dynamics of any situation. Everything might be moving along quite nicely at the dinner table, everyone’s happy and laughing but one question can send those same smiling faces into a frenzy of shouts and upset. This also holds true in a classroom. Students may be working quietly and the teacher might be content but one question or comment from a student or the teacher can turn that quiet into bubbling sea of chatter."

As teachers we know that there are days when a lesson is just not hitting the spot. This post provides a range of ideas across the curriculum that you might try if this happens..."just quick tricks to step up the beat so that students stay interested."

Five lesson ideas are presented for math, reading, writing, science and social studies, each providing an idea that you may want to incorporate. One example for social studies is below (quoted from the post).

Lesson:  Civil Rights

One of the most important lessons taught to students, this gives them a deeper understanding of right and wrong and why laws exist and need to be enforced. Sometimes students see it as ancient history though. So keep it current as well.

Add Students.

Ask the important question: How have things changed? Have them list it or journal it then expand on that as the lesson continues. They need to understand their relationship to it.

Aeron Selena Murrin's curator insight, December 23, 2013 5:21 PM

I disagreed a lot with this article. The traits that it lists I feel like are too interchangeable to make a huge difference between a manager and a leader. I also felt like you could be both things, most of the time. The one that stuck out to me the most was "The leader ensures trust and results whereas the manager represents control and authority". Maybe I just didn't understand the article, but to me, you can be both whether you're a leader or a manager. Does that make me small-minded? Who knows.

¿Algo más? (Anything else?). Such a common, useful question! When I am choosing picture books to read with beginning Spanish learners, I am always happy to find a repeated phrase that we use commonly in conversation. ¿Algo más? is that phrase in the book Siesta, by Ginger Foglesong Guy.
