What's Your Angle?
When teaching a lesson, I think you have to approach it like a shotgun. Shotguns do not just shoot one bullet, but spray lots of little bullets at the target.
In the same way, when teaching, try to hit the lesson from many different angles. Have them use their hands, their voices, their eyes...use food, music, technology, movement...keep trying to hit the lesson from another angle. By doing this, the lesson becomes exciting and you tap into the different learning styles.
Currently, I am using this approach with a lesson I teach every year on the Battle of the Alamo. Join me at Ed World's Innovative Teaching group and let me know how you use this multi-angle approach.
Be innovative and keep the fire in the classroom burning!
