In my history classes I am having the students work together in teams to teach a section of our current chapter. It has been interesting to see some of the ideas they have come up with for how to present their material, especially those who generally do not do anything in class--no notes, no homework, etc. These are the ones who get the most upset when the other students don't pay attention, and talk while they are trying to teach. Maybe it's Karma, or maybe it's justice, but it feels GOOD. :o)
Take care, Stick.
