================= ECONHIST.TEACH POSTING ================= I have not used warm-ups for my normal lecture periods. I assign "cold-calls" which usually force students to be ready for class. I do use warm-ups for exams. I tell students that taking an exam is no different from running a race, playing a sport like baseball or volleyball, or playing a musical instrument. If you do not warm up, you'll sprain something (in the case of an exam, your brain.) So, I usually spend the class period before an exam reviewing material and working with the students to come up with warm up exercises for the exam.
