Hi Ruth,
Wish I were there...
Sometimes I've wished for a bank of application problems, or
worksheets, or tests. More frequently, Sometimes I benefit from comments of
personal experience - "war stories". Recently, I've collected a wealth of
ideas on cooperative learning to use next year. As a novice to this
approach I am eager to expand my use of it, but more importantly, I want to
do it well. So the suggestions of specific activities and approaches have
been much appreciated. I do not find the debate on the efficacy of the
practice of similar benefit. Perhaps a way of collecting suggestions,
activities, experiences by topic would be useful - but you can leave out
the debate on its utility.
Also, I find it useful to dialogue with an experienced practitioner
- perhaps a database of "experts", or at least those with some experience
could be created (maybe the sender's name and address in the collection of
messages by topic would be ok).
Have fun.
