Accelerated Learning Laboratory (ALL) has stringent classroom dynamics. With class instructional activities, strategies, and expectations include formalized choral rehearsal activities, Expert Trials (mastery learning), Challenge Exercises (application of learning), preferred activity gating, heuristic interactive lectures/discussions, interactive “need-to-know” discussions, cooperative group projects, individualized projects, classroom socio-political dynamics, feedback and intervention.
Teaching practices utilized at ALL help students form meaningful associations between what is known and what is learned. New learning is associated with that which has been previously learned. Learning is a cumulative process. Knowledge application skills and group problem solving strategies are developed. Additionally, ALL pedagogical practices encourage behaviors which facilitate learning, such as organizational chunking, logic, and learner activated metacognition.
