“So…what questions do you have?”
I dread the blank stares accompanied by silence that I’m sometimes met It’s hard to figure out how students are doing with the subject material, and sometimes it’s hard for them to communicate their struggles. I will be trying the following for my upcoming “Smelly Science” class.
During class, I really like the following idea taken from 20 Quick Formative Assessments:
“Red Card/Green Card – Using red, yellow, and green cards, students can indicate their understanding of the presented material as it happens.”
At the end of class, I want to make the best Jeopardy game my students have ever seen. Not some lame PowerPoint version, something where I can embed images and video. It seems there are a lot of web based generators out there, but I am intrigued most by this one from superteachertools.net.
