Dear Susie, et al,

   What is an "anticipatory set?"

Dear Ann,

An Anticipatory set is a component of the Madeline Hunter style of lesson
planning. It's the part of the lesson where you introduce what the students
will be learning. You try to make it something exciting to hook the students
and make them "anticipate" the learning and activity. It's what most of us
do, but Ms. Hunter gives it a label and makes it a deliberate part of the
planning so that people learning to teach remember to do it.
