Student-Led Teaching


Found In: routines & procedures, motivating students

When I notice students that are beginning to disengage from a lesson or need a motivational boost, one of the things I do to reengage them is to have groups of students present the lesson for me. I give each group a chapter from the book. They have to decide which member(s) will present the lesson. Everyone has to participate in some way. They may include visuals – i.e., posters or power point photos. I sit back and enjoy the show.

The group gets a grade and each individual gets a grade. When they have to stand in front of the room and present, they are more likely to appreciate what others go through when presenting. Sometimes they are more likely to pay attention to each other than they are to me. If so, fine. I am still arranging the situation so that they learn the material.
