Site Leader: Discuss the questions in a large group.
Andy Aiken cites research showing that student learning improves when they are actively engaged in solving real problems. In a group discussion, answer the following questions:
- How could this approach to teaching make "covering the curriculum" more difficult?
- How could it make it more effective?
- For which lessons from your own classes might such engaged debate work well?
