How Socrative Changed My Warm-Ups

…Students are allowed to use their warm-ups papers as they take the quiz on Socrative, and my goal is never to trick them. I keep my promise every week that the 3 problems are different, but are related to the warm-ups. Even with all of these supports in place, the classroom during the Socrative warm-ups quiz is intense! They are SO CAREFUL to touch the correct answer choice, because they know there is no recourse if they touch the wrong thing. ***… Continue reading

Socrative: Instant Feedback Homework Check

…you’re right!) rather than the dreaded red one (you’re wrong!) Socrative gives feedback for each question immediately after students choose their response. One young man nearly fell out of his desk in celebration as he chose the correct solution time and again… fists in the air, celebrating each small victory.
