Daily Assignment #47: Summarizer- The Envelope, Please

The Envelope, Please is a way to get all students involved in an end of class review/summary.  At the beginning of class, give each student a question in an envelope pertaining to the lesson.  At the end of the class, the teacher randomly selects a student and ask for "the envelope, please."  The teacher then reads the question aloud and the student who had the envelope answers the question.

If the envelopes are sealed, you might want to give students 2 minutes before the activity to open the envelopes and work on their responses.

The questions could also be used for a written homework assignment and then used for a quick review the next day.

I hope you will experiment with this strategy.  Let us know how it goes.
