“Use the Force”

Michel Nadeau • Playing Tips • February 6, 2020

Quick knowledge assessment: To get all students involved and to quickly assess their knowledge I will pose a question and have students close their eyes when they have the answer.

I will then ask them to raise their hand when they hear the correct answer or I will have them show me fingers for beat counts, etc. Doing this allows me to quickly get feedback on their retention and cuts down on written tests.
