Students’ attention holds better if you upturn expectations, says education author James Lang in our latest webinar.
Imagine what a difference we could make if we all took five minutes — even just a few times during the semester — to offer students the opportunity to reflect on their learning habits.
With an investment of just a few minutes every class period, or even just one class period a week, you can help students see the stars of your course content in an entirely new light.
The opening five minutes offer us a rich opportunity to capture the attention of students and prepare them for learning.
Use the vital first few minutes before class begins to bond with students, set a firm agenda, and build a sense of curiosity.
