One aspect of active learning is "Recall", where instead of re-reading the material the student writes down everything they recall. Since I read about this I've been trying it with fiction and non-fiction books (in Physics or Math, I guess a student rarely re-reads the material, moving on to problems and then going back to the text for filling in the gaps the problems expose, does that count as practising "recall") and it is discomfiting being faced with my own ignorance: stepping back I can see how it has forced be to learn how to be a better reader first time around and that it makes the second reading much more effective, but I'm still filled with trepidation at the thought of having to recall what I just read. And I consider myself a relatively mature learner - self-directed, Concrete examples, Dual coding, Elaboration etc.

I stop to miau to cats.
