Hand held response cards you can make them yourself, have the kids make them, or buy them. They are used as visual responses and you can have the questions and each student will have a card with answers on them. There is only one answer to one question and the student with the right card needs to give you the right card to finish the problem.

sara zuzich's insight:

Social networking outside of the classroom can actually help students in further learning. Take tumblr for example, you learn abour news on there, people further there vocab. You are still learning. It helps you interact with other people and help build confidence. Now a days, it can be hard for people to make friends or just communicate in general, but you make friends online which is also amaizing.

sara zuzich's insight:

Collaborative teaching is another example of a successful teaching method. Students work together to review the activity, and solve it. Working together combines everyones mind and different skills. This method helps teach them how to work together, and support each other in learning. Using this method can also help build character, which every person needs to build. In my opinion if you start this at an early stage then people can grow closer, and understand each other so that in the future they can work with each other.

sara zuzich's insight:

Research shows that children like and succeed with this approach. They like this method best and is most comfortable with it.  People learn by doing and focusing on the task. It can also allow them to be able to learn and figure things out on there own. I think this is one of the most effective ways to teach and you learn from it. I would rather learn but trial and error than listening to someone talk the whole day.
