Finding effective lesson hooks
The first few minutes of class can make or break your lesson, and a hook is key to ensuring that your lesson starts off right. A great hook piques student interest in the topic of your lesson and cultivates their curiosity.
However, finding an engaging and relevant lesson hook can be difficult and time-consuming. First, you have to find an image or video that is relevant to your lesson, and then you have to make sure it is appropriate for your students. Finally, you also have to make sure it’s something your students would enjoy. With all of this criteria in mind, it can easily take over 15 minutes of your precious time to find the right hook.
ClassHook solves this problem by making it easy to find short, educational videos from popular television shows and movies that are perfect for grabbing your students’ attention.
