Cool Strategy of the Week - Sketch to Stretch
Next time you are giving a presentation/lecture on a topic ask students to sketch the key ideas. Sketches can be made on paper or using programs such as OneNote or Paint. Students can then share their drawings as they explain them to each other. This allows you to easily monitor student comprehension of critical content. For additional information, check out this resource: http://www.learner.org/jnorth/tm/InstrucStrat29.html
