The students get the opportunity to write down and gather their thoughts and to check their understanding.
The activity makes it clear to the students what they understand and what they do not understand. The students practice evaluating their own learning.
The students are involved directly in the teaching; they have their understanding checked, and they practice their capability of arguing.
The activity is a brisk exchange of thoughts and ideas leading to a joint solution. The students discuss without the teacher meddling - in a safe environment open for a free exchange of thoughts and ideas, that is.
The students have the opportunity to reflect on a question and then discuss their answer or opinion with a fellow student in order for them to find a joint solution. The exercise increases the student activity and leads to more answers than in the traditional teacher-student dialogue.
The activity directly involves the students, makes use of their knowledge, and increases their attention. At the same time, the items discussed get a personal relevance to the students.
