This 20-Minute Mentor provides practical strategies to share important course information, capture students’ interest and intention, create opportunities for interaction, and create an invested community for the remainder of the semester. This program incorporates specific strategies that can easily be integrated into any course, and techniques that stimulate a first- day environment that allows students to familiarize themselves with each other, the instructor, and the content of the class in a fun and interactive manner.

Upon completion of this program, you’ll be able to:
• Have a structure for the first day that includes information, investment, interaction, intention, and interest
• Learn several ice-breaker activities to build student-student and student-teacher engagement
• See the connection between first-day activities and semester-long commitment to learning
