Active and Cooperative Learning

Organizing for Class

With active and cooperative learning there is always a bunch of stuff that I'm taking to class. Since I'm usually dashing off to class at the last minute, I find that it's easy for me to forget a handout, or student work, or overhead transparencies, or announcements, or...... So I have a canvas bag (in two different colors, if possible the same as the textbook cover) for each of my classes. As I'm preparing things for class, I just put them into the bag as they are ready. Then when I leave for class, I just have to grab the bag and I'm off. The only time there are problems is if stuff doesn't get in the bag, but that's rare.
