Basically get a cup, get some Popsicle sticks and write your students’ names on them. That’s it. As you are going through your lesson, simply, every so often stop and pick out one. Use some washi tape and write the student name on it, that was it.

I imagine by now most of you have at least heard of interactive response systems? For me, I know we have used them in the past in conjunction with our interactive whiteboards. They are little remotes that each child received and you could do a quick quiz on the interactive whiteboard and allow the students to answer. From that information, you were able to drive your instruction accordingly. It is wonderful for preassessment, middle of the lesson, or even a post-assessment review. The data is nice because you can break it down by question.
