Instructional Ideas

  1. In response to a text, teachers can have students use this app to explain its main idea, significance, or important facts. Additionally, teachers can input a word bank of vocabulary words from the text and set specific parameters for this assignment, such as students’ writing must be at least 75 words and use three to five words from the word bank.
  2. Teachers can instruct students to write a three-paragraph essay on the Egyptians, natural disasters, the human body, or any of the pre-loaded Clicker Docs word bank list topics. Students can share their writings via Dropbox, AirDrop, Google Docs, or print them to accompany a presentation in HaikuDeck, iMovie, or Videolicious.
  3. As a lesson or unit review, teachers and their class can create a compilation list of vocabulary words used during the lesson or unit, and teachers can have students input them into their Clicker Docs word bank. Next, teachers can have students write a summary of what they learned or an explanation about an important idea, process, or phenomenon that was studied. As part of the writing assignment, students can be required to use at least 5–10 of these words in their summaries.
