I browsed this article too-quickly last night, so I place it here to help start my thinking for the summer. The problem? My students see lecture as “teaching” and the progressive style I’ve cultivated and try to practice as “not teaching”.

“Lectures Aren’t Just Boring, They’re Ineffective, Too” in the Journal Science.

  1. Most students need to realize If the “presenter” doesn’t gather and respond to feedback from the audience it’s a lecture.

  2. Ugh! I am so with you. The teachers that reformat the book, hand out as a “study guide” are revered and those of us who insist that the classroom is student centered don’t teach right.

  3. Can you tell uus more about this? I’d want
    to find out more details.
