HELPFUL COGNITIVE APPROACHES

7.  Novelty

Novelty excites the brain and stimulates learning, and young adolescent brains are hard-wired for action.

Like it, or not, there is a lot of competition for students’ attention.  We live in an impatient world of sound-bite news, accelerating download speeds, and fast food to go.  We have to invest some energy in shaking up the learning environment; we have to keep our lessons fresh.

Lessons that create curiosity, anticipation, and suspense activate          their intellects and direct their physical and emotional energy           toward productive goals.
