Group work

Instead of having individual students summarize their learning as a review exercise before a test I put the students into groups of 4. Each student got a big idea and had to come up with one easy, one medium and one challenging question with an answer. Students were engaged, asking each other questions.

Improve for next class: What does a hard question look like? What makes a good question?
