In a mechanism akin to flipping we share lesson-related resources, and then ask students to reflect on a question before class - giving them a chance to own their learning process. Advance resources & organizers, and the knowledge that they will have space to share at the beginning of class provides our students with an opportunity to re-engage with ideas. This approach allows students to recover some of the connections that they have previously made and to choose to be active learners.
