Working at the Whiteboard

Description: When solving a problem, (e.g., logic or critical thinking) have students work out the problems themselves, by asking them to go to the whiteboard in small groups to solve problems. If there is insufficient whiteboard space, students can still work out problems as a group, using chart paper and markers.

Benefits: This activity helps students apply what they have learned through reading or didactic teaching. This approach can strengthen students’ logical thinking processes and test their mental model of a process or equation. The activity can be done in pairs or groups.
