Through the course of a block the students experienced a variety of ways to dig in to the content. I watched a debate over immigration policy, personal time to process what the debate incapsulated and the speed dating.
And what you may ask is Speed Dating? Students were assigned a concept and had a minute to share that concept with a partner before the right side of the table rotated to the right. In a very short time students were able to jigsaw a complete study sheet. But, that wasn't all, after the concept speed dating students self assessed each concept by circling a yes or no on their sheet.
Mind work + movement = effective review
