What is your perfect lesson structure? Is there one?

What is the best structure for a lesson or sequence of lessons?

If you are reading this post you hopefully buy into the idea that a teacher’s core role in education is to create memorable learning experiences that promote the 3Es; excitement and engagement which leads to students excelling at school and subsequently in life.
