Classroom Discussion: Professors Share Favorite Strategies for Engaging Students
"I’ll pass out two or three poker chips to every student. As we begin the discussion I ask each student to give me back a chip each time they answer a question. Rapidly the talking students use up their chips. Since they can no longer speak in the class it leaves the non-talking students to answer the remaining questions." @Hannah Mestel Mestel Mestel Mestel Mestel Mestel Mestel Mestel Mestel Mestel Spencer
pickles and ketchups--On Fridays, place them on the board. Anyone who has turned in all of their assignments is a "pickle" so write their name under the pickle sign. Anyone who is missing an assignment has their name placed under the ketchup bottle. Pickles can "pick" a fun game or activity, while "ketchups" catch up on missing work. It is amazing how quickly assignments come in!
Minute to Win It…Fun collection of games (and photos) that could be used in the classroom as stress relievers or just when everyone needs a little break. #elemchat #spedchat #games via Tunstall’s Teaching Tidbits which is fast becoming one of my favorite blogs.
