Teach Like a Champion
Technique #12
The Hook
“I” Technique

“The way in is with The Hook:  the short introductory moment that captures what’s interesting and engaging about the material and puts it out front.”

KEY IDEA:  When necessary, use a short, engaging introduction to excite students about learning. 

  • Story
  • Analogy
  • Prop
  • Media
  • Status (describe something great)
  • Challenge
Characteristics of a good Hook:
  • It’s short.
  • It yields.
  • It’s energetic and optimistic
  • You do not need one for every lesson.
From Teach Like a Champion by Doug Lemove (Jossey Bass, 2010)
