Incorporate a “safe” way for ALL students to engage in the classroom with Answer Flags.
It happens every year, if not every day- you ask a question and the same two or three hands rise eagerly to respond. Some students recognize that they do not have to think about the question because sooner or later the same students will answer for them. To avoid this, we try calling random students to get someone different to participate. However, this might backfire and cause the surprised student to shut down like a deer standing in the headlights. There is a way to avoid the embarrassment for students who want to try but might not be sure about their answer.
Answer Flags is a class participation tool that engages every student during lessons, notes, assignments and more. You can turn any moment into an Answer Flag moment with very little effort.
***It helps teachers visually evaluate in REAL TIME how many students understand the information or how many are struggling on the current topic(s). This will let you know what to reteach, spend more time on, or try explaining in another way. This is more efficient than waiting for assignments to come in with low grades or low quiz scores to see what information was not grasped.***
HOW IT WORKS:
▪ With very little materials needed, you will be able to make your very own Answer Flags.
▪ These flags are incorporated with A, B, C, D answer choices. All you have to do is ask your class a question and the students will raise the flag showing which answer choice they believe is correct.
It is amazing how something so simple can change the dynamics of a classroom and students’ self-esteem.
