  • Explaining rationale for instructions rather than blind instruction.
    • IE// Explaining that for a journal-entry assignment, students must adopt the perspective of an individual when writing due to its personal attribute
  • Rephrasing explanations in different manners.
    • IE// Write out instructions on board for visual learners, orally repeat instructions for aural learners
  • Have students orally repeat instructions to internalize them.
    • By students orally repeating, instructor can also listen to oral instructions from different perspective
