Taking Hawaii | Student Contributions Through Homework Checks

One of the ways I like to check homework is to ask students to contribute to the lesson content by sharing bits of their homework, which is never much. The pics below include four or five student contributions along with my elaborations (as I talked them through the events).

This type of activity will lead to more engagement because the students were given a chance to drive the boat. Most of us want to captain something, anyway.

What next? Students can make timelines or posters with cartoons that relate to the events. They could also break into groups to write one-sentence summaries on the magnet white boards or on Padlet, depending on the extent of device use.
