Another idea for integrating guest speakers into a classroom learning system is to have students do all the legwork. Not only will the speaker have a great deal to offer students, but the process of deciding, finding, booking and hosting a guest speaker will serve as an exciting learning system and memorable experience. Make the invitation of a speaker a class assignment. Discuss potential organizations as sources for speakers, making lists and brainstorming possibilities. Narrow it down to ten and let the class vote.
Divide students into groups and assign each student different responsibilities. Doing so will create a collaborative and problem-solving learning system. It will also allow students to reach out of the classroom bubble, a bit out of their comfort level, and into the community.
