So why are we picking on the worksheet or (worse) the packet of worksheets? Well, a worksheet is not that engaging or exciting for students. It’s often not student-centered or meaningful. They’re rarely collaborative. And, it’s very easy for students to copy someone else’s worksheet.
So for the month of December, we are going to have a challenge – the #antiworksheet challenge! If you frequently use worksheets in your class, we’re going to give you digital alternatives every day during the month of December. Of course, there are lots of non-digital alternatives to worksheets, too – but this is a tech chat.
We would love to hear your ideas! Email them to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet it out using #antiworksheet. If you share your idea, you just may save a kid from a boring night of homework.
