    1. guided practice: we set up a structure in which learners can test their skills and get feedback on their progress. This contrasts with another teaching strategy variously known as constructivist, discovery, problem-based, experiential or inquiry-based learning.

      Guided practice is where we do:

      • We work, our learners in the workshop work
      • We use frequent formative evaluations every 5-10 minutes using multiple choice questions and the MCQs are so created that they can tap misconceptions, not just fact checking.
      • We hold student's hand and guide
      • We do this so that repeated practice will help to store information from short term memory to longer term memory
      • Minimalist guidance actually increases the burden of learning new tools
