Dear LOR user,
Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

Have students log in to kahoot.it
Play kahoot… but taking the time after each question to discuss and review all answers (even the distractors) https://create.kahoot.it/#quiz/827e03a8-7aeb-4e9c-8c40-00f007ad23c9
Pair/Share (“strategy pairs”) review of the questions that had the most incorrect answers

Playing Kahoot this way takes longer because each question, along with all the answers, are discussed.
It’s still noisy and fun for the students!
