Invite Students to Become Teachers
The power of a tutorial is timeless; one of the most popular Google searches of all time is “how to tie a tie.” Give your students an opportunity to harness this power and teach them how to teach! They will reinforce what they know, gain confidence, and learn how rewarding and challenging it can be to take on the role of instructor.
Choosing a Topic
This project fits seamlessly into any subject from math to writing to sports. When used to wrap up a unit, educators can peak into students’ thought processes to see what details from a unit were retained, what they found interesting, and what needed to be refreshed. As an open ended prompt, students have the freedom to share what they know.
