Class Material Relevancy

Make your class material meaningful by relating the material to your students’ lives, lifestyles and future professions. Students learn things more quickly and easily when it relates to them. Also give your students opportunities to immediately apply their knowledge. This can be done in a practice session, lab, a written exercise, a small group activity or a full class discussion. Application reinforces learning, builds confidence and provides feedback.
