Weekly Tribes 2013 – student centered active learning

December is always a crazy busy month…holiday emotions and projects and interruptions.

Here is a very effective and challenging instructional strategy.  This could be a grand project, or simply an active and student-developed learning experience to use for reflection and total engagement…it is concept attainment.

How might  you use this for:

  • understanding influence
  • agreements and/or behavior
  • the concept you are currently teaching
  • a student-created rubric
  • a portfolio entry
