My good friend Virginia Welle turned me on to a seriously good review technique. I love making them for most every unit - and I just made a new one for my Social Psychology review today in class and I thought I'd share it with the psychology teachers out there (who likely won't get to social psychology until April...sigh...). But anyway, here's how it works:
Kids get the sheet and have to reason which term/name/study/etc. DOES NOT BELONG with the other. I am constantly trying to teach my kids to review in ways OTHER THAN REREAD THEIR TEXT, NOTES, or MAKE MINDLESS NOTECARDS...so I like these very much because it tests their metacognition. (Thanks Dr. Chew for turning me on to THAT term!)
Social Psychology - What Does Not Belong?
Do you make reviews like this? Don't you love them? Want to share with others? If so, email me and I can link them up to this blog.
A very happy holiday from the snowless "frozen tundra" of Wisconsin.
