“The beginning is the most important part of the work.”
A good beginning will motivate the students and trigger their thinking and the desire to know and learn. A good beginning of the topic or lead-in is important as it prepares the learner for a new topic, helps to bring the topic into students’ focus, gives a clear idea of what the students will be learning and helps to create a positive class atmosphere.
