I. A Sampling of JiTT WEB MATERIALSa. WarmUps
Warmups are the core of the JiTT method, providing the feedback loop between in-class and out-of-class involvement. The examples provided here will encourage you to create your own, warmups that reflect your personality and your style and take into account the strengths and weaknesses of your students.

b. "GoodFor" Essays
The essays that we now call "GoodFors" were originally developed for introductory physics in response to students comments about "the lack of usefulness of this old stuff." It has been picked by by other disciplines. They are there to be shared. To prepare these is a time consuming task. "GoodFors" should not be a high priority item in a JiTT course.
