I really like the PEER strategy as well. I think this is a good way for the students to understand and remember the material they are being taught. I feel expansion can help them remember the material more. I feel the students should know the material by heart, and be able to answer questions with ease before moving on to another topic. Moving on before a student can fully understand the material may cause them to feel lost or confused, and they will just get farther behind. I would go over the material several times until I feel my students know it, but adding in fun activities so they don't get bored. It is important to make sure they are interested in learning.

        Megan, I also loved your idea of having a central theme! In Dr. Deal's class we were able to take a central theme and develop many different lesson plans around it. We were able to utilize a lot of... more

        I really like your idea about having a central theme, then doing lots of different things with that. I still think it is difficult as a teacher to decide when to move on to a new skill, or even when... more
