This provides for organization of a favorable learning atmosphere. The teacher has to think of something to stimulate the learners’ interest and capture it for the new material about to be delivered.

A lesson could be introduced in any of the following ways:

  • Brief review of the previous work and a quick introduction of new work. The two should be linked.
  • Asking a question within the learners’ experience in a given setting.
  • Reviewing new words, terms from previous lesson and introducing new terms or vocabulary.
  • Giving an interesting story with a bearing on what will be taught.
  • Describing a familiar event that may be similar to the new event of the lesson. This should be within a familiar setting of the learners’ environment. The event should be interesting, brief and relevant.
  • Reviewing a concept developed in the previous lesson.
  • Using the key point of the same day’s lesson as an introduction
  • Giving an outline of what will be learner.

Introduction is important in a lesson because it sets the pace, the tone, the vigour and even quality of the rest of the lesson.
