Notes and Tests

12/21/2008

I found this post (My first rant – Copying notes from the board) from a history teacher who is having problems getting away from lecturing.  Not because of his own willingness, but his students.  I have found this to be true in my own class room. 

I have found if they know they are getting a practical assessment instead of a traditional assessment, they have less desire to take notes.  I still have some students who want to be spoon fed, but the majority begin to process the content.

Do you have this issue in your classroom and if so, how do you combat it?  Leave your comments!
