Prior Knowledge

Recognizing that we need do assess students’ prior knowledge and link knowledge for them explicitly, please complete the following activity and reflection question.
  1. List 3 concepts that you expect students to have as prior knowledge when entering your course.
  2. List 3 concepts that you expect students to gain as new knowledge in your course.


How could this exercise help the transfer of knowledge from one course to another within your curriculum?
