Bench cards, (or things I’d like to laminate)

Wednesday, September 25, 2019
10:00am – 11:15am

Storrs Campus

What are the core concepts in your course? What are the main things your students need to refer to, over and over? This is a creative workshop where instructors think through a “top ten” list of core concepts for a course and create laminated “bench cards.” Bench cards are typically used in the judicial system as handy, succinct reference tools for jurors and judges. In classrooms they are often used to post instructions. Another way they can be used is to give students a laminated list of habits of mind that are essential for success in the course, or a list of course objectives. You could also have them create their own lists for success in the course.
