This week’s teaching strategy:
Polar Opposites – Ask the class to examine two written-out versions of a
theory (or corollary, law of nature, etc.), where one is incorrect, such as the
opposite or a negation of the other. In deciding which is correct, students
will have to examine the problem from all angles.
(from Kevin Yee, Interactive Techniques, 2007)
