Reflection: Accountability Propaganda Practice - Section 1: Anticipatory Set


I often employ the strategy of having students teach concepts to one another, and I do so in a variety of formats. Sometimes, I will have a few individual students doing this in a coaching format with small groups. In others, like in this lesson, I have everyone participate as a teacher of sorts for a portion, and as the student for the remainder. 

I find that students will often "raise their game" when they know that their peers are depending on them for information needed. They are very good at recognizing the rising stakes under these circumstances. I also find that students gradually become more appreciative and respectful during learning because they are more aware of how difficult it can be to teach others at times. As a result, they are more focused and get more accomplished over time.
