A classroom teaching technique that increases participation and decreases disruption is active student responding (ASR). Active student responding measures include guided notes, response cards, and choral responding. Each have their advantages and times in which they may be more useful than another.
The benefits to active student responding is that it allows for informal assessment of student skills, provides increased opportunity to respond (and receive reinforcement), teachers report that methods are easy to implement, and students report finding it to be fun! This presentation will review the three types of ASR methods and will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each method.
