CJ Wallace contacted LbQ to share a few pictures and let us know about her recent experiences of lessons using LbQ Question Sets with instant feedback.
CJ’s lesson involved teaching mathematics to her 6th graders:-
“We were using the percent of a whole lesson, and the kids just LOVED it! They were so challenged by the reasoning and problem solving questions, that it led to some AMAZING conversations amongst themselves trying to figure them out. They used the feedback to guide their discussion, and came to the solution on their own. They were so excited and felt a huge sense of accomplishment when they got it correct! It was such a remarkable moment that I had to grab my camera and try to capture it! Thank you for giving us the tools to create a memorable lesson!”
