Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Steroid Use in Professional Sports - Section 4: Independent Practice (part 1)


The great thing about this strategy is that it functions rather cyclically and allows students to think, write, talk, and then repeat, adding new information or a new perspective at each layer. Students question the topic, the content, their own knowledge and understanding, as well as each other. This process prepares students for far more than just the writing piece at the end, but also for future discussions and writing pieces.
