Ask students to consider their grade on the last quiz, test, or other regular assignment, and to consider what it would take to improve their grade just 10%--a small amount if you are tipping a server! Discuss what they could do to make that relatively small improvement and challenge them to do so. Study 10% more? Spend 10 minutes reviewing notes right after each class between now and then? Encourage them to think of this as a small improvement but one that nevertheless needs a plan to achieve.
Remember that this is just an example of how to get started
with this Teaching Method.
