Final Word Timer

Jim Hatten used the final word protocol twice this past unit with his sophomore English class and felt it went well. His sophomores discussed an article on cheating and then an article on environmental threats. Jim's also planning on using final word with his senior journalism class.

Jim projects a timer on his screen so that students can keep track their talking time.

Teachers with Interwrite pads also have a classroom timer as part of their gallery teaching tools. Projecting a classroom timer has a variety of uses to assist with classroom management.

Usage of classroom timer is innovative and is an excellent teaching tool! I know of a wonderful website which promotes classroom management. This site gives free behaviour tips and resources for teachers, head teachers, lecturers and classroom assistants.
