How Do Your Students Share Their Answers with the Teacher?
The sharing of their answer can be done with technology like electronic "clickers", cell phones, an iPad app, or website, but it does not need to be done with technology. It could be done with students using a small dry erase board, each student having a set of index cards with each card having either an "A", "B", "C", or "D" on it or even students putting one figure up for "A", two figures up for "B" and so on. The important element is that students "lock in" an answer before sharing begins.
