Are you looking for ways to freshen up your lessons? Let’s face it when you’ve taught the same material for a while, you and your students may find it less-than-exciting. Now, don’t get me wrong, lesson plans are crucial to our success in the classroom. Following your school’s lesson plans is a must to ensure consistency, and maintain the integrity of your school’s curriculum. However, after teaching the same lessons for days, weeks, months and even years can certainly get boring for even the most enthusiastic of educators.
Thanks to technology, giving lessons a face-lift is a click away. A quick internet search can help you identify ways to supplement your lessons with interesting new content. Images, video clips, classroom activities, energizers, learning games, hand-outs, and even apps that your students can download will bring your lessons to life.
I suggest making it a daily habit to perform a quick internet search before you begin a new lesson and/or topic to find new fresh content that can easily be intergraded into your lesson plans to fresh up your day!
