Worry Journal
Ted Richerzhagen

Instead of a single "muddiest point" exercise, Ted's "Worry Journal" allows students to keep track of their questions over a period of time. During a lecture, students record their questions whenever they arise. Then at the end of the class period, section, or week, the instructor collects the worry journals and addresses each question in a review session. This allows students to reflect on their question in the interval and encourages them to seek an answer for themselves. It assists students to focus on lecture material from one day to the next. In addition, of course, the worry journal can stimulate class discussion as well as help the instructor determine appropriate review material.
