Tips and Tricks...
-This activity is designed to be a whole class review. Split the class into small teams (2-3 students each), being cautious of dividing ability.
-Print and cut out the questions to be projected. Questions do not
need to be done in order.
-Put all team’s x’s on display on the front board.
-Use a clean/empty trashcan as your basket. Pre-tape two lines varying distances away from trashcan.
-Go over the rules as a class. Pass out a few copies to the class that they can circulate for reference.
-Set a “percentage correct” goal with your class before beginning the review. In my class we have an “aim high” attitude to prepare for the final test. Our goal is usually 80%. Have a reward or incentive for those who achieve the goal.
-Have students track each question and standard on a piece of paper. This is crucial in helping students know their weaknesses and will save you time identifying how to help them before the final test.
-I would recommend giving a question and reviewing it immediately after. To help with the honesty in correcting, my students have a pencil and a red pen on their desks. When it is time to correct, they have to sit on their pencils or put it behind them.
-Review and record their scores immediately after this activity so they can take the review sheet home to use as a study sheet. Encourage students to write down the initial problem and to make notes for each problem corrected.
