Small Teaching Chapter 7

Chapter 7 is about using emotions to motivate. You can use a story, or an interesting problem at the start of class to engage the class. You can periodically remind students of the big picture. I do both of these, but could remind myself to do these things more often.

The author also mentions that negative emotions may work better, but may cause other problems. I think he missed an opportunity for a Star Wars metaphor.
