As teachers return to the classroom following this difficult year, there is much preparation required. Quizalize can help you assess which concepts your students understand before, during, and after instruction.
Laura Smith is a veteran teacher of 30 years in all grade levels. For the past 8 years, she taught middle school science in NC, and started using Quizalize 5 years ago for every classroom assessment.
If you are a middle school teacher, then you may have noticed that middle school-aged kids have a very short attention span. In my classroom, I try to “change gears” often to keep the kids engaged and interested. In my 50 to 60 minute class, I try to have at least 4 or 5 different activities to do. I use short, interesting videos to introduce a topic. Middle school-age kids pretend to be so cool, but they enjoy silly animated videos, and I am more than pleased to offer them. Here are a few of my favorite science channels.
