Instructional Procedures

I present this "lecture" in sections over the course of five or six days. Students should retain the handout and add to it each time the lecture continues. 1) I discuss the terms. 2) I ask students to write their own explanation for some of the terms for that section in the appropriate space on the back side of the handout 3) I draw a student's name. If that student can successfully re-explain one of the terms from that section, a candy bar awaits!
