How do my students learn? Well, I like being able to give my students time in lessons to express their creativity. It’s a joy to watch them make learning connections in theoretical understanding, especially when those connections are self and peer led through discovery. Much of what I ask them to do is based on sharpening evaluation skills, and I have written before about techniques I have used to develop higher order thinking skills in my learners. This post is about how I encourage learners to take on board knowledge as with no knowledge, they would have nothing to evaluate in their exam.
