Coming Soon: Hooking Students into Learning… in all curriculum areas

After many years of development, Patricia Hipwell’s new book Hooking Students into Learning … in all curriculum areas has hit the printing press.

The book, which is nearly 500 pages long, is a collection of strategies for teachers to start lessons with students engaged in meaningful learning activities. These lesson starters or hooks are beneficial because they:

  • move key facts and figures from short-term to long-term memory
  • activate prior knowledge about a topic (where prior knowledge exists)
  • awaken interest in the topic of the lesson
  • check for understanding
  • improve a variety of skills
  • develop learning strategies
  • improve vocabulary
  • develop collaborative learning strategies

Hooking Students into Learning … in all curriculum areas was written for teachers of students from Year 4  and above and has a wide application in those year levels.

The book will be available for purchase from mid-October. Patricia will also be hosting a book launch in Brisbane in early November.

Developing different reading skills

by Patricia Hipwell March 01, 2019

Many students believe that all texts must be read in the same way – closely and continuously. This is because when we first teach children to read we use books. Competent readers do not read every text in the same way and have the right skills for each piece of text.
