In this video John details his use of think-pair-share activities and peer teaching to get his students to directly engage with class content and one another. His students, sitting in group tables, utilize tablet and wall whiteboards to work through problems individually and in teams, helping each another identify issues as they work towards solutions. John sets up concepts and analyzes solutions using Tillett 204's document camera and computer projection. Click on the video above to watch for yourself.
