This title provides secondary school teachers with a wide range of highly creative suggestions for classroom starters and plenaries. Starters and plenaries are now established elements of all good lesson planning. A good starter gets a class engaged right from the word go, challenges and motivates students and sets a positive tone for the rest of the lesson. A good plenary allows students to focus on the key objectives of the lesson, and reflect on the progress they have made. These five minute slots at the beginning and end of lessons are an opportunity to be extremely creative and draw on a range of different ideas and sources. However, keeping them fresh engaging and challenging can be difficult, lesson after lesson. This book will provide teachers with a wide range of suggestions: from individual to whole class activities, from the energetic to the sedate, and from technical ideas that involve some planning to those which can be used straight out of the book. Most importantly, the structure of each activity would be the focus, allowing the teacher to include content relevant to their lesson. In this way the teacher can dip into the book when they are in search of a new idea and adapt the activity to suit their topic or group.
