Eureka Moment


What to do:

Start using this phrase in your lesson- 'Eureka Moment'
It means when a student has- suddenly realised they understand the work, or they have figured out something that was previously troubling them. Or they have moved onto a higher grade- but can explain why.

Have students write on a post it note- what their eureka moment(s) of the lesson was- use these post it notes for a display? Or to demonstrate progress?
At the end of the lesson- read out the eureka moments and ask the author to explain?


Base the eureka moment on certain things only- such as the lesson objectives?
