Flip Thinking Techniques

Just a quick addition, to the technique outlined below(you need to read Progressive Flip Thinking first).

So, lets say the kids arrive, they have prepared for the lesson doing some of the easy work at home. How you need to test them.

Multiple Choice questions are a fast way to get coverage of the topic.

I want to use some kind of 'clicker' to record the students response. OK no cash for that !

So a colleague came up with using 5 coloured cards, A, B, C, D and E on different colours.

Students vote their answer. 

So only a couple get it wrong, you need to do a quick follow up for them.

Many wrong answers, well ask the students to pair with a different colour.

Peer Instruction, students have to convince each other of the correct answer.

Re-test the students answers.
