Top Six Teaching Tips
Helping your students become successful in and out of school
Tip #1: Tantalize, don't TELL!!

Tip #2: CONNECT TO THE CONTENT!
Put the content of your teaching in a meaningful context so that it gets stored in your student's memory and they will be able to access it in the future. The goal is to put our lessons into as many "real world" settings as possible.
In my classroom, that means asking myself, "How can I teach this in a way that fits into their world right now?"
