1. Pass the Paper
the best way to introduce a subject is to find out what students already know, or think they know. This technique allows us to find out what we should teach, but it also gives the students an opportunity
to state what they already know, and a connection to what they will study.
Pedagogically, "Pass the Paper" is one of the most sound approaches to unit preparation and teaching.
2. Give One, Get
Rationale: Reviewing for exams is an important technique, especially on final exams. However, oftentimes we end up re-lecturing
or re-teaching. Good review should give students the opportunity to discuss and get answers from their classmates. Give One,
Get One can be used as a brainstorming technique, but in the seminar it was discussed as a test review strategy.
As David Vawter says, "If you want long term retention, you
must have reflection."
