Made it clear how each topic fits into the course

When students understand how topics are connected, it improves their overall understanding of course concepts as well as their motivation for learning. 

Do This Today

Show students a list of your course learning outcomes, or have them look at their syllabus, and ask, “how does today’s topic fit in our overall learning outcomes?” If it is not obvious, have students explain, or try to explain, how the topic fits. This gives you the chance to unpack the outcome a little to show how the topic relates and provides a good opportunity for showing where you are heading next in the course. Doing this from time-to-time throughout the term helps students see connections between topics as well as the general direction of the course.

Remember that this is just an example of how to get started
 with this Teaching Method.
