This week I finally got on the band wagon and started doing ‘Student Interviews’. Basically one by one you call students up to the front of the room and interview them. I first heard of these here from Bryce Hedstrom. I keep seeing teachers post about these and after contemplation decided these could be a good way to use CI/repetition in 1st and 3rd person as well as learn more about each student.
Well……My. Students. LOVE. Them.
They keep begging to do more (yay), but I told them we’ll do 3 a week until everyone has gone. Hopefully the novelty of them will keep going!
Do you do student interviews? What follow up activities do you do? How do you keep your students engaged and responsible for paying attention and participating?
