Another one for the Teachers

28 Sep

So we just had another “specialist” come in and talk to our staff about creating lessons that will promote higher level thinking from Bloom’s (if you don’t know what that is, you are not in education).  It inspired today’s lesson to review for tomorrow’s test.

I folded a piece of paper into 12 squares and put an answer to a test question in each square.  There were two sets of papers – an A and a B set.  So I gave the students the answers and they had to come up with the questions on the back in the corresponding square.  Then they cut out the squares and used them as flash cards to quiz someone else.  The students with the A worksheet quizzed those with the B worksheet and vice versa. 

Hope this isn’t too confusing.  It was actually a really great way to get them thinking hard.  One student asked “Wouldn’t it just be easier if you gave us the question and we had to find the answer?” 

My reply:  “Yes, yes it would.”
