In this week’s exciting installment of “us teech gud”, I bring you an interesting technique that you may find quite useful.

Hopefully you have learned that, when students need to teach material to other students, they need to repackage the information, and often come out with a better understanding of the material. This exercise in metacognition is a powerful tool that can be implemented in varying ways.

The linked article from The Teaching Professor suggests a way to utilize this process for rubric creation.

The primary take-aways I picked up from this are

A) Students have to think of what quality is for the assignment, not just what boxes need to be checked.

B) Their active involvement promotes investment in how they approach the quality of their own work on the assignment.
