JITT RESOURCES - 2018

JiTT resources span the spectrum from web and classroom items to books and articles on effective teaching and assessment of learning.
Please note: Some of the resources are actual web page that were presented to the students and include a navigation bar with links to other course resources. Some of those links are not operable.

I. A Sampling of JiTT WEB MATERIALS

a. 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.
