Thank you John! This article has some simple, but excellent suggestions to increase information processing at the beginning and end of class. It also provides an opportunity and level of accountability for students who may be focused on homework or learning outside of the classroom. If they know that you’ll ask them to review last class without notes at the beginning of class – they are more likely to be prepared for class with a quick review before class starts. This process activates the neural pathways for this subject matter and like a good stretch before a run, “limbers” up the mind for conceptualization and information processing.

This 2016 Chronicle of Higher Education article just came across my Linkedin newsfeed and it is a good refresher for those of us in front of the classroom.
