QR Teaching Materials

Several pedagogical approaches which are especially important for teaching QR are:

1. real world applications and active learning, including discovery methods

2. pairing QR instruction with writing and critical reading

3. using technology, including computers

4. collaborative instruction and group work

5. pedagogy that is sensitive to differences in students' culture and learning styles

6. scaffolding the learning process and providing rich feedback and opportunities for revision

Each of these approaches are described in more detail here.
