Weekly questions

If you ever teach a philosophy class, require your students to submit a question every week about something related to your course material about which they are confused, uncertain, puzzled, or even just curious. When the questions are all in, don't go the standard route of having them write responses to one another's questions—respond to all of them yourself, and collate them for everyone to see. Your students will have you scurrying down little-explored alleys, and brushing the dust off of forgotten tomes, much to your own benefit.
