Keep Your Class Interesting part 8

8. Relate Material to Students' Lives

Try and create a real-world connection to what students are learning, so that it will give them a better understanding of why they need to learn what you are teaching them. If your students are constantly asking you why they need to learn something, and you always are answering with “because” you will soon lose your credibility with your students. Instead, try giving them a real answer like "You are learning about money because in the real world you need to know how to use it if you want to survive. You need to know how to buy food and pay your bills." By giving them a real answer you are helping them connect that they must learn what they are learning for their future.
