I am teaching a lesson on Robert Frost's poem the Road Not Taken, but I am focusing the lesson on decisions that we make in life and what influences those decisions. I have my lesson pretty much covered except for the motivation at the beginning of my lesson. Anyone have any ideas of what I can do to get the students interested or thinking about what the lesson will be. I want to try something fun.
Ask one of your students to relate something unusual that happened to them recently. After a couple of sentences, stop the student, and ask the other students to suggest what happened next. Then get the original student to give the real version.
