Respond Signals


Found in: motivating students; student participation

Instead of having students raise their hands to answer questions, I use other signals. Using thumbs up or down, response cards, fingers to signal an answer with choices, or heads up/heads down allows all students to participate in answering questions. This provides a risk free environment and students can try to answer all the questions asked. My class enjoys this activity and it allows me to see all the students' responses instead of just a few.
