How use Starting with Games Puzzles, and Brain Teasers

    General Description When students come to class, they see a puzzle, garnet, or brain teaser on the overhead or PowerPoint screen (Boxes 2-2, 2-3). This strategy is especially valuable for large classes, when lots of discussion and participation may become unwieldy. It provides an activity for early arrivals or students who don’t know one another. Instructors can also pass out puzzles or games to get the thinking started.

    Preparation and Equipment You just need to find the brain teasers and have them available for the class, whether in audiovisual form or on paper. Example of the Strategy at Work Boxes 2-2 and 2-3 show only two of many possible brain teasers.

    Remind them not to select people they already know They talk within their groups for a short time, perhaps 5 minutes. In that time, they must come up with four similarities and four characteristics unique to each group member. Invariably, gender, occupation, marital status, and parenting experience are mentioned.

    Coming up with those eight characteristics requires students to delve somewhat into Rich others’ lives. The most rewarding aspect of this method is that the students who do this exercise together become bonded for the duration of the class.

    Common and Different may be used to open meetings. Even people who have worked together may discover some eye openers when they reach out to discover each other’s common points and differences.

    You can stimulate discussion after the exercise by asking the group. “Which was hardest, finding commonalities or finding differences The answers may provide insight into the group process and composition.Common and Different may ago generate discussion about differences and similarities, transferring to cultural, professional, ethical. or controversial topics
