This short article gives you an overview of using Captur with textbook worksheet activities, such as multiple-choice questions and fill-in-the-blank questions.
The easiest use of Captur has got to be checking students' answers to multiple-choice questions. You read out the question from the textbook, and students show you their answers with their Captur paddles. You'll be able to see at a glance how many students got it right.
You may notice wrong answers, indicating that some students need a bit of revision. If there are a lot of wrong answers, though, you'll know right away that this particular question has something about it that students have a fundamental misunderstanding about. This could be particularly useful in TOEIC prep classes.
Many textbooks, though, don't have multiple-choice answers. However, the textbook problems may easily lend themselves to being made into multiple-choice questions. When you're checking answers, simply say four options aloud (one answer and three distractors), and watch students' answers.
For example, let's say the students are looking at a family tree, and they're filling in questions such as,
- Tom is John's ___.
- Paul's father is named ____
- Sally is ___'s neice.
It's pretty straightforward to check answers by giving the students some options to choose from. You could say, "Here are the choices. A: brother. B: cousin. C: uncle. D: nephew. Ready, answer!" All of the students will show you their answers.
