Give One, Get One

Type of strategy: Brainstorming and Discussion

This strategy provides a great review and enables students to gather information from each other.


  1. Tell participants to gather all of their notes and make a list of facts or ideas learned.
  2. Have students begin with a partner assigned by you.
  3. Instruct them to collect one new and different fact or idea from their partner.
  4. Then they are to give one new and different fact or idea.
  5. If neither has a new and different idea, tell them to brainstorm the topic and try to create one (preferably a correct one).
  6. Go from person to person until you generate about 15 ideas on the subject.

Compile a group list of ideas generated.
