Anticipation Guides are a great way to get students motivated to learn and/or read a passage.
Clip from Directions:
Fill the templates with 4 statements that would best represent the learning to come. The statements should spark interests and/or opinions.
For example, if you are beginning a unit on the causes of the Vietnam War, one statement could be:
It is America’s responsibility to uphold democracy in the world.
