-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!
Parts of speech response cards:
Each response card has a matching definition card.
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
-Use as flashcards
-Have students create their own definitions, visuals, and add examples to the back of the response cards before laminating
-Add magnets to the back of the cards and use them on the white board to practice identifying parts of speech in sentences
-Attach tongue depressors to cards to turn them into response sticks
