Teaching Tip #53

Teacherscribe’s Teaching Tip #53

Now who doesn’t need help with this topic: how to make lessons more engaging?  

Way #3 – Remember, interesting things flow.  

The author notes how “flow” is like being in the Goldilocks zone – not too hard and not too soft.  Just right.

If your content is too easy for students, it’s boring.  If your content is too difficult, it’s frustrating.  The trick is to find that perfect tension right between too hard and too easy.  That’s where flow is.

Look at video games or even games in general.  They access flow so well, which is one reason why they are so addicting.

How can we make our lessons or content more addicting?
