Teaching strategies

Fire and Life Safety Educators are invited to speak at a variety of venues. Careful planning can make the difference between an excellent visit and a mediocre one. While some folks are intimidated by longer sessions, it is the shorter ones that can be the most difficult. A 10 minute mini-lesson is challenging because you need to hook the audience, help them learn new information, and wrap-up in a concise manner. Take a look at our template and lesson samples below, and try to make it work for you the next time you are invited to give a brief presentation.
