Using creative visuals is an effective and quick motivator to gain students' attention at the beginning of your lesson. Showing students the creative visual gives teachers the edge they need to hook the student. It is an easy to implement preventive classroom management trick in order to quiet students. I like to give my students a copy of this creative visual to use as a notebook cover in my ancient history class. Use as a print out, on a transparency for students to see as they enter your classroom, or on your electronic whiteboard.
