Teaching Strategies  




In this relay-type strategy, students divide into teams and sort a stack of terms, definitions, or concepts into their respective buckets at the end of a playing field, all the while trying to beat the other team by getting it done first. After the relay, the instructor examines the sorting buckets to see how accurate the class was. this provides an opporuntiy to reflect and further learn about the concepts, definitions or terms sorted.
