Peer Instruction Improves Performance on Quizzes

Learning is not a spectator sport. Students do not learn by simply sitting in a classroom listening to the teacher, memorizing prepackaged assignments, and spitting out answers. Students must talk about what they are learning, write about it, relate it to past experiences, and apply it to their daily lives. Students who are actively involved in learning retain information longer than when they are passive recipients of instructions.
