Activate Background Knowledge. Set the stage by tapping into your students’ background knowledge – previous life experiences, prior learning, or both – to prepare them for the new concept you’re about to introduce. The point is to make connections between what your students already know and what you`re going to teach them. For example, if you`re about to present a lesson on using metaphors and similes in writing, start out by discussing what makes a story engrossing to a reader.
Know Your Class Objectives. What exactly do you want your students to be able to do by the end of the lesson? This should be clearly communicated to your students orally at the very beginning of the lesson and posted in a highly visible location in your classroom. It`s helpful to have a specific place in your room where you regularly post your objectives, and to have a set routine in terms of how you introduce the objectives, such as asking your students to read them aloud with you at the beginning of class each day.
