“Whiteboards are a great tool to help students organize their thinking,” says science teacher Mrs. Harris at the Organized Classroom blog.
Harris says whiteboards facilitate discussion, especially when she has a student go to the board to share information on a topic.
“When students return to their seats to start the class discussion, everyone is ready to share,” she says.
She also uses classroom whiteboards to create concept maps to review vocabulary, and for reviewing multiple choice answers.
