Time: 1-2 minutes
1. Prepare a Power Point slide or Word document with a question or two on it, choose questions and write them on a whiteboard, or prepare an open-ended question form with Googe Forms or other polling software. See boxes below for sample questions.
2. At the end of class, or at another appropriate point during class, show the slide/document or write down the questions, have students write down their responses on a blank sheet of paper or type directly into the online form. Make sure that the students do not put their names on the paper or form unless they would like you to contact them.
3. If you use paper, have the students hand the papers to you as they leave.
