It is very useful to know what is appropriate behavior and compare it with inadequate one. For example, “In this area we need to wear boots and sandals are prohibited” or “you need to speak with respect, we can not scream.” By having both behaviors next to each other we can compare them and therefore

What’s the question?

Usually exams are full of questions. What if we give answers instead of questions? Think of phrases or 10 possible correct answers and ask participants who will take the test to think what could be the question to such an answer. For example, “15 years” and the question that the participants should make would be

Don’t know!

I love it when I do not know the answer to a question. I love because it means that participants are really taking their learning seriously and they are not sticking just to the superficialialities.

After completing a chapter or a specific subject, ask participants to summarize in one sentence what they have just learned. Go through the class giving each participant the opportunity to share their sentence with the rest.

What do you think?

In class there are always different opinions. We each have our way of seeing reality and perceiving situations. Make sure that that is not a problem but an opportunity.
