Student-centered learning
• Students encouraged to participate actively in
learning the material rather than “sit and take notes”
• Students involved throughout the class time in
activities that help them construct their
understanding of the material that is presented.
•
• Instructor no longer delivers a vast amount of
information, but uses a variety of hands-on
activities to promote learning.

Beginnings…Beyond once upon a time
• A great while ago, when the world was full of
wonders...
• A long time ago, the old people say...
• A Saam told this tale as he sat with his friends by
the fire at night. He swore that all of it was true. If
you have nothing else to do, I will tell this tale to
you.
• At a time when the rivers were made of chocolate
and wishes could come true...
• At the time when men and animals were all the
same and spoke the same language... (Traditional
Navajo opening)
• Far away and just as long ago...
• In a certain realm, in a certain land...(Russian
gypsy)
In a land that never was in a time that could never
be...

Endings to what was told
• A grief shared by many is half a grief. A joy shared
is twice a joy. (Vietnamese Folk saying)
• A mouse did run; my story now is done.
• An' the wheel bend, an' the story end.
• And as far as anyone knows, they are living there
still to this day.
• And ever since then, that is the way it has been.
• And if they didn't live happily ever after, that's
nothing to do with you or me.
• And now the story is yours.
• And she lived till she grew up.
• And so it was, and so it is.
• And so the story goes.
• And that is how it is to this day.
• And that's a true story!
