Maps From Memory
Another favourite strategy of ours is "Maps from Memory".
To start with, these were literally maps but the approach has been used very successfully to encourage students to recreate diagrams (eg, the structure of the ear), Mind Maps, processes (eg the Water Cycle), and pieces of music (either listening to music and then re-creating it, or reading sheet music and reproducing it in written or auditory form).
Nice applications for this approach can be found in articles such as 'Thinking Through Music' by Martin Renton.
