The main topic for this class was about motivational strategies. In groups we talked about ways we could introduce a topic to get students engaged and interested. If we can’t get or keep the attention of our students then are not going to be able to get the deeper understanding of the topic.
Shortly after we went into smaller groups where we each had to come up with a lesson and the main focus was being able to get the attention of students and have them excited about the topic. My group choose the Pythagorean Theorem, what I liked about our choice is that we were going to have the students come to the conclusion where the formula comes from. I think that it would be beneficial because the students are able to actually see how and why the formula is the way it is.
