Station 2- Hooks

  1. 1. Exploring the 'Hook' (Also known as Anticipatory Set)! ! Ilana Turetsky, EdD!
  2. 2. Hooks play a critical role in great lessons.
  3. 3. Good hooks serve to pique student interest and frame subsequent learning so that it has a new layer of interest, meaning, or relevance.
  4. 4. Let's start with a 2 minute video that explains the basics of Hooks. While you watch the video, please keep in mind the following question:! ! The video gives some great examples of Hooks. In my view, one example is significantly inferior to the others in terms of the quality of the Hook and the degree to which it generates interest on the part of the students. ! Please guess which Hook I perceive as inferior to the rest. !
  5. 5. Please click here for video link If you after a couple of minutes video still isn’t loading, try this (though it may sound strange): -  Right under the video, click on ‘share’ -  Then, hit ‘play’ button on the bottom left of the video. -  Give video a couple of minutes to load and it should work. -  You can then expand to full view of the video. Please don’t forget to return to this presentation when you’re done!
  6. 6. Going  back  to  the  question...   The video gives some great examples of Hooks. In my view, one example is significantly inferior to the others in terms of the quality of the Hook and the degree to which it generates interest on the part of the students. ! Please guess which Hook I perceive as inferior to the rest. Please explain your answer.! ! Please click here and share your answer ! (you need to be signed in to the course to submit your response)!
  7. 7. If you haven't yet submitted your answer, please go back to the previous slide, click on the link, and submit your guess. ! (Don't  worry,  you  will  not  be  penalized  if  you  select   something  different  than  I  did,  as  long  as  you   suggest  something  reasonable)  
  8. 8. Here are my thoughts... (which  are  by  no  means  the  'absolute'  right  answer)   My least favorite Hook was a review of the information from the day before. While reviewing information can be helpful and important, I believe it shouldn't replace the Hook.! ! Here's why...! !
  9. 9. The purpose of the Hook is to prime students for the upcoming lesson in order to enhance learning during the lesson. ! ! This may be accomplished by: piquing interest by asking an intriguing question connecting the material to students' lives showing an attention-grabbing demonstration tapping into students' prior knowledge While reviewing information may refresh their memories, it doesn't provide an interesting framework for the upcoming lesson.
  10. 10. A Hook is an alternative to: "WE LEFT OFF Yesterday AT PASSUK GIMMEL SO WE'LL PICK UP AT PASSUK DALED TODAY."
  11. 11. Examples  of  Hooks  for:  Class  on  Megilat   Esther,  Perek  Daled   Have you ever been in a situation when you felt like if you didn’t step up, no one else would, and things would be drastically different because of your action or inaction? Have you ever felt like you saved the day? What makes someone into a hero?
  12. 12. Examples  of  Hooks  for:  Class  on  Chol   Hamo’ed   Is Chol Hamo’ed more like Shabbos/Yom Tov or more like weekday? Why? More advanced students: Is Chol Hamo’ed more like Shabbos/Yom Tov, more like Rosh Chodesh, or more like weekday? Why? Please list all the Halachos you know about Chol Hamo’ed.
  13. 13. One  last  comment  about  the  video...  CLASS   TIME   Some of the examples in the video were Hooks for a UNIT rather than for a single LESSON. ! Though you may invest a lot of class time into an intro for a unit, the intro for a single lesson should be much shorter.! ! The Hook for a regular lesson should take no more than a few minutes so that most of class time is dedicated to learning the actual material.! ! ! !
  14. 14. YOUR TURN! As a class, let's brainstorm ideas for possible Hooks on a lesson related to the following topic:! ! The Story of the Meraglim (Bamidbar 13)! 9th Grade Co-ed Class ! ! Please contribute one idea for a Hook on the following Googledoc:! Link to Googledoc! !
  15. 15. Thank  you  for  watching  and   for  your  participation!
