Welcome Assignment Idea

Posted by Debby on 6th April and posted in Bright Ideas

Last week’s topic was about student engagement. As a follow up to a discussion post, I asked:

As a teacher, is there something you can do at the beginning of a semester/unit to gauge what motivates students, and then adjust according to what you discover?

She responded with a great idea that I think I’ll incorporate into my “welcome” assignment next term:

I think the best thing to do is to ask your students directly to write about their favorite or most memorable course in terms of learning and why it was so memorable. Let them tell you what has worked for them in the past and what they value most from the experience. What did they learn about themselves and how they learn?

I always love it when I get new ideas from my students 🙂
