"Around three in the morning, He came toward them walking on the sea.... 'Lord, if it's You,' Peter answered Him, 'command me to come to You on the water.' '
Think Peter forgot that lesson? Well he might have strayed a few times, but he remembered who saved him that night.
Question for you: "How many times do you include something that students will never forget because it was unique?" You and your students are unique. Are your lessons? Dag Hammarskjord is quoted as saying, "What you must dare is to be yourself."
Synonyms for unique are incomparable, matchless, unparalleled, unrivaled, sole, and only. Do we teach in an unrivaled fashion? Are our lessons matchless? Do students find your class incomparable (in a good way, I mean)?
My daughters still speak about Mr. Peer's swivel chair demonstration in Physics. (Ask him about the details.) It was unique and they still remember it.
Plan a unique learning experience for your students next week. Try it out. Make an impact.
