Shake Up Your Lessons!

Are your lessons "samey-samey," perhaps predictable?  Are you looking for a way to shake up the group a bit?

This interesting Psychology Today article outlines the SCAMPER strategy to shuffle your content and presentation.  (Don't let this call you to teach false doctrine!)

The basic idea is look for ways to:

S = Substitute?
C = Combine?
A = Adapt?
M = Magnify? = Modify?
P = Put to other uses?
E = Eliminate?
R = Rearrange? = Reverse? 

Read the whole article to get some ideas.  Your students will thank you!
