HELPFUL COGNITIVE APPROACHES

10.  Social Interaction

The brain is innately social.  It requires interaction to remember things well.  One of the best ways we can help students retain information is to engage them in substantive conversations about their learning.

Whoever is responding to students in the classroom is doing the majority of the learning.  As often as possible, have students respond to students.  Instead of declaring a student’s comment as right or wrong, ask       another student to give evidence to support/refute the opinion, then       ask a third student to critique the second student’s evidence.  Call           on the original student to offer a rebuttal.  Step in only to prevent misconceptions.
