Description

Students are best prepared to discuss course material when they have done the assigned reading and thought seriously about it. Therefore, I require students to post critiques in advance of most classes. I read these carefully as I'm prepping, incorporating their ideas and questions into my notes. I draw on this information in class, asking particular students to elaborate on ideas they’ve written. This strategy stimulates rich discussion, and coming into class with a keen sense of what students are thinking enables me to tailor the discussion toward topics of interest to students.
