Whether it is in my AP Lit class or my Standard Inclusion English II class, I have a standardized test at the end of the course to prepare them for. For my English II, we are not concerned with speed, but for my AP students, there is a fairly short time frame they must adhere to. So I thought I would give them a curve ball for yesterday's Multiple Choice Monday challenge.
I did not take this one for a grade. Instead I put them into groups. On the board I had 1-20 listed, each with A B C D E beside it. I gave each group a different color wet erase marker and told them that they have two reading passages and 20 questions total. Each group can send one member to the board to circle an answer choice. Only one member from that group can come up at a time and no team member can answer more than one question at a time. They are welcome to use their group for help in picking the right answer choice. The catch?
- Since they are writing in wet erase marker, once they have claimed that answer, they cannot go back to change it.
- Only on team can claim a letter for any particular question.
