In Praise of Think-Pair-Share
Celebrating Think-Pair-Share, the Little Strategy That Could, and sharing some best practices for making it work for you.
How to Teach an Inductive Learning Lesson
Instead of saying, “Here is the knowledge; now go practice it,” inductive learning says, “Here are some objects, some data, some artifacts, some experiences…what knowledge can we gain from them?”
How to Use the Reciprocal Learning Strategy
This cooperative learning strategy takes the idea of “working in pairs” up a notch.
How to Use the Concept Attainment Strategy
I like this strategy because it really involves students in their own learning. Instead of just delivering the information to them, you’re helping them discover it on their own. Also, it’s captivating — a mystery to solve! — which is far more likely to engage students.
