Relate Class Information to Reality

Engage students by designing activities that show how the class information relates to their lives or current events. For instance, if a student is a runner, have that student identify the major muscles and bones affected by running and what types of modalities would be the most beneficial. When teaching ethics, bring in an article or news story about an ethical problem and discuss how that affects their profession, or what they can learn from that incident that could be applied to their profession.
