A choice activity is very simple - the instructor asks a question and specifies a choice of multiple responses. It can be useful as a quick poll to stimulate thinking about a topic; to allow the class to vote on a direction for the course; or to gather research consent.
Some Ways to Use Choice:
- Thinking about existing knowledge
- Assessing understanding
- Selecting groups
- Gather pre-event comments
- Bus & roommate, menu choices
- Memo tracking
- Feedback from students about course or activity
- Polling tool
- Sign up for an activity
