Level Up Lesson Openers
Psychologists have coined the expression the ‘primacy effect’ for the way the human brain has an uncanny knack of having a higher level of recall of the first of a series of events than those in the middle. If you want learners to remember the key messages from your lesson. Make sure you use the ‘primacy effect’ to its full effect. Equally a good lesson opening helps learners to easily link back to previous lessons.
The ideas within this 4by4 come from teachers who have gone through the Outstanding Teaching Intervention (OTI).
