Getting Feedback on Confusing or Controversial Topics

If you have been covering a particularly confusing or controversial topic, end the class by having each student write what was the most unclear or most controversial aspect of the topics covered in class. Next, divide the class into small groups to discuss their lists and rate them. Then have a representative from each group share their top item with the class.

Note: If it’s a small class or you have extra time, you could cover more (or all) of the items, and re-rank them according to the group submissions.
