Powerful Debriefing Tip

This idea was shared by Jim Doherty on Edutopia (a post I shared some months back):

When a student responds to a question you have posed, ask one or more students to repeat back in their own words what they just heard.

So simple, yet so powerful.

This simple strategy is a wonderful way to engage more of your group in the conversation, not to mention, sharpen their listening skills.

It’s also a useful technique to explore more deeply what your students actually ‘hear’ and understand what you or others have shared.
