Teachers. Technology. Together.
This Student Participation Sheet one of the most popular teaching tips that I share when I present locally or at other districts. I can’t take credit for creating it as it was something I picked up along my 20 years of teaching.
I use the Student Participation sheet whenever classes come to the lab to encourage them to stay on task and to follow the school and computer lab rules.
It is a cinch to manage and record but the biggest benefit is that it really works with the students.
Here is how the Student Participation sheet works:
The sheet can be modified for students in younger grades or to support different grading scales. For instance, I have a version that is based on a 10-point scale and another that uses happy faces for younger students. Finally, I have a paper-saving version which reduces paper use. Examples of these sheets are included.
Below you’ll see a sampling of the different versions of the participation sheet:
