Weekly Teaching Tip: Three Questions

10/19/2007 | By: Staff Report  |

If you teach evening classes when everyone is tired from a busy work week, try this technique for getting your students into "class-mode."

Ask three questions at the beginning of class:

  • The first question should be non-subject related. Historical, geographical, or other trivia questions work well.
  • The second question should be subject-related, but not directly related to the material being covered in this particular class.
  • The last question should be directly related to the topic you will talk about in class.
