This week’s teaching strategy:

Guided Lecture: Students listen to 15-20 minutes of lecture without taking notes. At the end, they spend five minutes recording all they can recall. The next step involves learners in small discussion groups reconstructing the lecture conceptually with supporting data, preparing complete lecture notes, using the instructor to resolve questions that arise. – See more at: http://teaching.uncc.edu/learning-resources/articles-books/best-practice/instructional-methods/best-practices-summary#sthash.9JIn2dOp.dpuf
