Whiteboard Review & Socrative

SDAIE Method: Whiteboard Review
Whiteboard Review is a text re-presentation strategy that enables students to plan and to collaborate on answers to questions before responding to them.  It allows for feedback from the teacher in a less threatening situation for students.

Students, working either alone or in small groups,  use an erasable surface to write down answers to questions posed by the teacher.  The questions typically would be either multiple choice, true-false, or short answer.  When prompted, the students display their answers, and the teacher gives feedback. Students then erase the surface that they are writing on, and prepare for the next question.

Digital Solution: Socrative

  • Multiple Choice
  • Short Answer
