-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:
1. True, False
2. Fact, Opinion
3. Agree, Disagree
4. Correct, Incorrect
5. Similar, Different
6. Yes, Maybe, No
7. Always, Often, Sometimes, Never
8. Rock Solid!, Sort of..., Totally Confused!
9. Do, Don't

11. 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!
