Asking students what’s the most interesting thing they’ve learned

I have posted these on twitter in the past, but I don’t think it’s ever made it to my blog. I have come to see asking students these types of questions as really important (for students and me). For students, pausing to think about what has been interesting helps make things more interesting. For me, I get insight into what stands out to students in a unit. In addition to reading quizzes that include these types of questions, I used to ask these on every exam. I’d like to get to asking about them on exams. I actually feel like asking it on exam is more important.
