IMAGE: learning2

IMAGE: active learning
Best For: Learning vocabulary, processes, and providing repetition
Procedure: Write/draw a process that your professor went over in class

CREATE
Use your notes and book to outline the entire processes. Use key vocabulary terms in the diagram, but on a separate page, be sure to have a vocabulary key, explaining each term

REVEIW & PRACTICE
Point to the different steps in the processes and talk your way through it aloud. Be sure to check in your book or notes regarding any questions or confusing areas. Repeat until you think you have it down and can explain it fluidly

CHECK YOUR UNDERSTANDING
Erase 4-5 of the terms randomly, then take a 5-10 minute break. When you return, see if you  can point to each blank and recall what was there and explain why it goes there
