Let’s call it a “spark” and not a “hook”

We continue to look for ways to engage all of our learners. We look to provide multiple entry points to learning in an effort to differentiate our instruction. Something bugs me about the language we sometimes use.

A spark is something that gets our attention and begins the inquiry process.

A hook is something that lures unsuspecting fish into the frying pan.

Don’t even get me started on the magic bullet.
