Captur Your Students' Opinions

Captur PaddleCaptur is a great tool for opinion polls. It's better than hand raising, because with Captur, a teacher can have students all answer at the same time, with up to four options. In traditional polls, the teacher may list each option separately, and ask students to raise their hands if they agree. The problem with hand-raising responses is that students can easily decide to simply follow the crowd, rather than risk standing out as the lone supporter of an unpopular option.

You can also poll students to see if they agree with an opinion or statement made in a video clip, in the news story, by the teacher, or even by a fellow student. After the statement, ask, "Do you agree with this?" Students can show A (agree), B (disagree), or C ("I need to hear that again").
