25 Tricks To Improve A Boring Lesson For Improved Student Engagement

25 Tricks To Improve A Boring Lesson For Improved Student Engagement | Student Engagement | 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.
