in the know

Adolescents love when you incorporate humor or pop culture into the lessons you teach.  It’s amazing how some students will gravitate to you when you show them you’re in the know about life.  Using humor or pop culture in lessons is all about making your lessons relevant to the students and their lives outside the classroom.  As I grow as a teacher I try to make my lessons relevant and show my students how what we are doing in the classroom is applicable to the world outside the classroom.

  1. How do you incorporate pop culture into your lessons? How do you determine what kids care about these days?
