Start with a BANG!
I’ve been experimenting with starting my lessons with a bang! Instead of introducing the learning myself, I’ve being doing it by video. For some reason my students seem to pay more attention this way!
It’s a great way to get kids hooked on the learning, and to answer the most important question in a lesson – what’s the point of learning this.
Here are two I’ve tried recently – they both got a round of applause from the students, so that must be worth something.
NB These videos were for a lesson on CV writing and an enterprise project. Both are important, but neither are Citizenship education.
