Also known as interactive or guided lectures, these lectures get students involved and have been shown to raise their grade. Many, many teachers are trying new and innovative ways (such as using cellphones in class) to get students involved more in the class. Stephanie Nickerson wrote a great article on what to do during enhanced lectures. You can read more about each one in her article at NYU.

  • Think-Pair-Share
  • Formative Quizzes
  • Create an Exam Question
  • Voting and Polling
