Quick writes – warm ups

Quick writes – warm upsI am not a big fan of warm up activities because all they really serve is to get students busy while you take attendance. However, I am required at this point to have some sort of written/busy warm up so…here is an idea that might be helpful. It kind of help students who get easily distracted but it also forces them to produce written output that they may or may not be ready to do. Anyhow, I keep it simple and short. I don’t really collect them because I don’t grade them. I use the questions to start a conversation in class.
