Below is a collection of what Tom calls “Look to Learn” activities. Rather than be told, what these are, he thinks it’s a pretty good idea for you to explore the links below and learn for yourself.
After this “discovery immersion” session, you should be able to answer the following questions:
- What are the key components of the activity format?
- What do you think the purpose of these activities are?
