Reflection: Problem-based Approaches There's a method to the madness - Section 2: Hook


I typically use the warm-up question as the “hook for the lesson because it’s time that I can use efficiently.  However, there are times that I add a 2nd hook for the day because I have found something that I particularly like and feel will strengthen student interest in the concept that I am teaching that day.  In this case, I created a crime scene using iconic music from a popular television crime show.  As soon as students hear the music, they are drawn into the lesson because they want to know how I am using something that they know outside the classroom in the lesson.
