How I Use It
As a warm up I ask students to respond to a prompt. The prompt has to be well crafted depending on the type of response you want to elicit.
I don't always use it but sometimes just to vary the ways that I engage students. It gives me a quick take on where they stand depending on the response that I am attempting to get. It can become a useless tool if you are not clear on what you need the students to say in response top your prompt.
