This week’s teaching strategy:
Recall, Summarize, Question, Connect, and Comment – This method of starting each session (or each week) has five steps to reinforce the previous session’s material: recall it, summarize it, phrase a remaining question, connect it to the class as a whole, and comment on that class session.
(from Kevin Yee, Interactive Techniques, 2007)
