My Favorite No

I recently found a wonderful resource online called Teaching Channel. It is jam-packed with wonderful videos to inspire your classroom teaching! One of my favorites is a short video on a strategy called "My Favorite No." It uses a traditional warm-up exercise done in the beginning of class and makes it more meaningful to the students by analyzing a student-generated wrong answer (the "favorite no"). I think this has wonderful implications in any classroom, regardless of subject area, especially because you are helping to foster risk-taking as well as higher-level thinking skills. I will definitely be using this in my own classroom!
