Lesson Planning #4

“Active Learning”

Active learning is where student must think, create, or solve a problem; skills critical to vocational training.  This model also practices sharing skills and knowledge, which also has great value for future employment.  Using “Think – Pair – Share”, the instructor presents a problem which utilizes concepts for the unit and allows the students some time to digest and develop their own ideas.  Students are paired up to discuss their responses for a set amount of time governed by the complexity of the problem.  When the time is up, the instructor gathers the class and calls on groups to share their responses.
