LC Module: Brain Quest Reviews

“Brainstorming can be used as an effective method to activate prior knowledge. Available research evidence also supports the general effectiveness of brainstorming techniques compared with the traditional lecture method. Brainstorming elicits higher levels of reflective thinking and creative problem solving, including synthesis, application and evaluation. There is also evidence that information learned through active discussion is generally retained better than material learned through lecture. Moreover, students often prefer to participate in discussion rather than to be passive learners in a lecture.” (Kapel,1988 as stated Keshwan, 2014).



GC401- Brain Quest Reviews – Listing Generator Review

GC401-S2 – Listing Generator Review – For review, Instructor and Alexa will direct students to participate in a Listing Generator Tour of one or more Listing Stations. A Listing Generator Station is a whiteboard, large butcher paper, poster, or flip chart sheet displaying an open-ended question requesting a full list of components, steps, or processes, related to an upcoming lesson. From their desk, each student will complete one or more responses of individual components or steps on sticky notes for each station. When requested, students will attach their sticky notes to each Listing Station, maintaining any crucial sequence, if applicable. Last, if more than one station, small groups will be assigned to each station to select the best responses and share with the class.
(Examples of a Listing Question – Good Job Interview Skills, Qualities of Good Character, CPR Steps, etc…)
(Tips – A Student Passcode may be used to ensure anonymity of the student’s response.)
