High School Example 1


Four Good Minutes:
While reading the book "Blink" by Malcolm Gladwell I was very interested in the research done by John Bargh about priming experiments (page 52 - 61 in the paperback version). I figured this could work well for my students and put them in a better "mood" to learn. At the beginning of class students have to sort a list of mixed up words to put them in the right order to form a sentence. It is usually pretty easy to do, but each sentence has a "good word" in it. For example, abides, accessible, accountable, charitable, charming, cheerful, etc.

I have my first 10 done in Power Point. I'll put one example up from SlideShare and upload the other 9 Power Points.
