    Need some ideas. My principle had all of us read the book Teach Like a Pirate (good book by the way). He thought it would be a good idea to give everyone a different "hook" that they needed to try in any of their lessons. I was given the backward hook.
    The backward hook description: How can I gain an advantage or increase interest by presenting this material out of sequence? Can I tell them the end of the story and let them figure out and discover the beginning and middle? Can I show them an end product that will make them want to learn the skills to get there?

    I teach at a behavioral school for elementary school age kids. I am trying to think outside the box and come up with an awesome and fun backward hook that will get the kids really excited about a lesson. I don't want to just sit up and tell part of a story. I like to try to have the hook be hands on.

    Any ideas????
    I don't have any particular subject matter in mind
