Gavin McCormack sent me the following great sample of the perfect lesson for students:
Step 1. – Show the students a picture of a group of students reacting to someone taking their picture.
Step 2. – Tell them it’s black and white.
Step 3. – Zoom in and prove it, explain how the human brain can use memory to fill gaps in colour.
Step 4. – Ask the children what they would like to know about the human brain and set them off on a research investigation.
Step 5. – Observe them as they work out how to start their research, who they will work with, and what it might look like.
Step 6. – Let them teach you and the class what they have learned.
