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.
