I teach in a school with block scheduling/90 minute periods, so I am adept at varying activities within a single class period. I consistently incorporate the following in my plans: varied discussion activities (socratic seminars, pair-share, small group, whole group, and other discussion protocols); kinesthetic activities to reinforce concepts; smartboard lessons/activities; Powerpoint lessons; audio/visual content to enhance units.
