A lure has been defined as “anything that attracts, entices, or allures” (Trevor Kugler). As a teacher, what do you use to lure your students in to the lesson you are teaching?
A teacher must have a tackle box full of attention getting lures for many different types of students.
The following is a list of lures that a teacher can use to “catch the class”:
One style of lure does not catch all types of students. Multiple types must be used to guarantee interest in the subject matter. These lures reflect Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences so each style of learner is being considered and captivated.
Catching students is the teacher’s responsibility! What’s in your tackle box? Add the lures in the list above to your tackle box and use several of them in each lesson. Do not rely on one old lure to catch everyone! Start using some new lures today! Happy fishing!
