Ch6: Constructivist Theory

Pg. 250 Verbalization  and Achievement
I was happy to learn that this is used often as a strategy to improve student learning. The last chapter left me wondering if there was something wrong with me since I tend to do this personally, but now I realize that I'm just helping myself understand whatever it is that I'm doing or working on, in essence I'm improving my own learning : ) . Now, I wonder if someone taught this to me and it stuck with me or if it's something that I just started doing on my own.

Pg. 256 TARGET
I found this very interesting. I like it. I did some of these things when I taught, but I don't think I incorporated everything in one single unit/lesson.
