How I Use It
Whole group, then students put heads down for quiz then raise hands when they think I've said the right answer. Choose someone from the majority to choose answer. If majority gets them all right, class merits.
My Take
Love BrainPop! Short movies that my students are entertained by, then short quizzes that I use to determine how much they gained. Students are given a reward if they get all the quiz answers right, so they're motivated to pay attention. Lots of topics, I pay for this myself for my classroom because it's so worth it.
