This collection of strategies comes from the book Total Participation Techniques along with Checking for Student Understanding. Many of them are well-loved and tested techniques for assisting in monitoring student progress. There are 14 different activities or hold ups included in this PDF. They can be used as formative assessments throughout your class period, as activators, or as closing activities. They are written to facilitate partner work or they can be used for individual students. They are formatted in a column format to reduce printing for your classes and to assist in lamination. Many of them can be printed, folded in half, and then laminated. I hope you enjoy these!
