to consider for implementation.
- Have you created the proper state for learning?
- Are your students excited, attentive, relaxed and ready to learn?
- Did your students have an opportunity to connect what they already know, their prior
knowledge, to the new knowledge?
- Did your students decide what would be good for them to know?
- Did your students have input in how best they should learn?
- Did your students know how they would benefit from the learning, What’s In It For
- Did your students have a model of the ‘parts’ and the ‘whole’ of what they are learning?
- Did you break the task into achievable steps?
- Did your students know what they needed to do in order to learn?
- Did your students show you, tell you, and do the skill to demonstrate their learning?
- Did your students have chance to work with and teach others working in small hetrogeneous
- Have you provided a review for the students learning?
- What do your students now understand?
- Can your students measure their own progress? What do they know, or what can they
do, that is different from before?
- Can your students demonstrate their progress in a variety of ways and using different
- Can your students tell if they met the learning outcomes?
- Can your students reflect on ‘How did we learn?’
