"Mind the Gap" in the Classroom
Ginsberg, Sarah M.
Journal of Effective Teaching, v10 n2 p74-80 2010
This reflective essay describes a teacher's development of a student-centered approach to teaching which bridges the gap between students' knowledge before and after a course. In "mind the gap teaching," students' prior knowledge leads the conversation and, in turn, the teaching, allowing them to integrate new information more effectively.
