I recently wrote about problems that I am having with CL. One such problem was that I was not providing enough closure for the students—I would like to have a large group discussion to go over the solutions.
This is difficult, though, since I am down to only a little more than 30 minutes for the students to work. One solution would be provide fewer, but more meaningful, problems for the students to work on. This is the long-term goal, but I need a short-term hack. I found it yesterday: I am going to start providing solutions at the front of the classroom. Students can then check their answers at their own pace.
This is in addition to my usual interacting with the teams. I will provide two sets of solutions, so there are really three ways teams can check their answers. Since I have 8-9 teams per class, I think this should work.
