-Help all learners get involved!
-Informal assessment tool!
-Improve student engagement!
The goal of these response cards is to use them as a tool to increase student engagement and participation. I have been using response cards in my classroom for the past five years with my middle school and high school students. Every time I use them, I am shocked at how much my students’ focus increases and their sense of accountability improves which then results in higher levels of comprehension. Also, the response cards add a bit of friendly competition and fun to my lessons!
Response Card Sets:
Letters A, B, C, D, E, F
Numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
Lesson Plan Ideas:
-Use as an informal assessment tool (Are they really getting what you are teaching them?!)
-Use for reviews (i.e., comprehension questions, test prep, etc.)
-Use to review and correct work
-Use for team reviews (i.e., split students into teams, ask review questions, have them collaborate, and come up with their group response)
-Have students create comprehension questions and quiz each other
Response cards can also be easily turned into response sticks!
