Abstract
Are there better ways to craft legal research assignments? This panel discussion will review current cognitive theory (spaced & varied repetition, scaffolding, etc.) and discuss how it can facilitate challenging, fair, and informative legal research assignments. We work with students that have a variety of skill levels and backgrounds. It is critical that we are engaging each member of our classroom in an intentional manner.
