I really like the way these steps can give the students the chance to be their own teacher and develop their ideas. Don’t we want our students to be motivated and want to learn, and having them decide on certain aspects of their learning will only develop that motivation. Students that might not usually contribute to class discussions become more willing to share their ideas, which tell you this strategy has the power to motivate. You know we have done a good job when students can teach us about a topic.
