22 Creating Your Own Lesson Time permitting, you are now going to write a lesson plan for an activity that will allow you to integrate an InterWrite product into your classroom. Remember to keep this lesson simple to avoid becoming overwhelmed. Focused practice with new skills will increase the likelihood that InterWrite tools become a permanent part of your instruction.
24 What are some ways that the PRS system could be utilized in your classroom?
25 Integrated the TurningPoint Student Response System PRS Overview Learning the PRS tools with PowerPoint Identifying and Analyzing Effective Lessons with the Student Response System Activity: Creating Your Own Lesson
26 Creating Your Own Lesson You are now going to write a lesson plan for an activity that will allow you to integrate an SRS into your classroom. Remember to keep this lesson simple to avoid becoming overwhelmed. Focused practice with new skills will increase the likelihood that the tool becomes a permanent part of your instruction.
