Generate your students’ need to learn something new!


Introduction is the key to spark students’ curiosity and motivation to participate in the activities. Curiosity is what inspires students to look into something new. Thus, every introduction to a new topic should spark students’ curiosity as it is important to find ways to introduce the topic of a lesson through a challenging, interesting and meaningful way. Remember that sparking students’ curiosity on a continuous basis is what nurtures the notion of lifelong learning, which in turn makes informed, productive and responsible citizens.
