Instructional Ideas

  1. After reading a text or studying a topic, teachers can have students post one to three questions into this app’s forum as a review. Concurrently, teachers can have students answer their classmates’ questions as they are posted. To hold students accountable, teachers can require students to email screen shots of their questions and/or answers to them.
  2. Teachers can have students peruse this app for questions that are answered incorrectly. Once an incorrect answer is found, teachers can require students to answer the question correctly and include a reference that supports their answer.
  3. To brainstorm research topics, teachers can have students search for questions aligned to their subject area. Once they find a question that interests them, students can compose a journal entry using WPS Office, Quick Office, or CouldOn to explain their interest in the question and outline their research project. The journal can be emailed to the teacher, who then either approves the project or offers revisions.
  4. As an ongoing assignment, teachers can require students to answer a set amount of questions each week or earn a certain amount of points each week. Teachers can monitor students’ progress pages weekly for accountability.
