Traffic Light Card (TLC) System
The TLC system is designed to give students a non-confrontational way to express their grasp of new and existing concepts as well as a fun, interactive way of testing whole class understanding. The lettered sides of the system can be used to conduct quick multiple choice quizzes for the entire class. The coloured sides are designed to be used by students to express their grasp of a new or existing concept.
- A green card shows that they have a sound understanding of the concept and feel confident in showing and using it.
- A yellow card shows that a student mostly understands the concept and are exploring how to show and use it.
- A red card shows that a student is struggling with the concept and requires additional assistance with their comprehension and understanding.
Students can face the corresponding card face up on their desk, preventing peer-pressure and embarrassment within the classroom.
The resource requires some preparation before it can be used in the classroom as it needs to be printed, cut out, glued and laminated before being bound together into an individual resource.
For a class of approximately 30 students, the resource costs approximately $10AUD to produce.
The download includes all the required profiles for the resource as well as in-depth instructions on how to put it all together!
