Citing Activated Learning
…a description of the Activated Learning approach was first published in 2018 in a chapter of a book. At the time, we were referring to it as the EFs 2 the Rescue Pedagogy. Over many years, as we worked with different teams of teachers, the name has evolved to Executive Skills Feedback and Assessment (ESFA) to #EF4ALL to Activated Learning. You can cite Activated Learning by referring to this first book chapter:
