[bbb] Or what goes on in their
minds until they tell me. And I came across this idea
called the one minute paper. I don’t know if anybody does this yet? And I started doing this in my class. And, I’m gonna modify
the questions a little bit for the coming semester but for two semester. Now I’ve done this at the end
of the every single class. So students get a 3×5 card or
a scrap of paper, and they answer what is the muddiest
point, what is the least clear point? What is the clearest point from the class,
every single class. And I do various things with them,
the start of the semester and I need to find a way for
it to take less time. I type them up, and
I share them with the class, so they can see the range of things that
their peers are getting out of the class, and the range of things that
they’re confused about. I see groupings. So I’ll start to see these main ideas
are actually coming across, but a few people might be
struggling with that. Or, I clearly didn’t communicate certain
ideas because most of the people in the class are, so it gives me a chance,
sometimes I’ll type responses. Sometimes I’ll deliver responses in class. But it was an eye opener for
me to realize that people really do absorb different
things in different ways. And it just kind of gave me a window in to really see students as
individual thinkers. I’d never understood. I thought the hardest thing
about teaching, I thought. Was a problem of audience. Cuz you have so
many different audiences in the room.>>Mm-hm.>>And how do you pitch one class
to a bunch of different audiences? And what I realized is actually you have
to keep those audiences’ mind kind of like all the time. And you have to kind of keep
checking them with them all, so.
