One Word

A very simply activity that you can use in your classroom to check for understanding is called – ONE WORD. At the conclusion of your lesson, you go around the room and have participants say one word that sums up the lesson they just heard. If you have just talked about repentance, you could place all of your students in a circle and say, “We have just discussed the Power of Repentance,” I would now like to hear the biggest word that stood out to you during the lesson.” Responses could include: sorry, turn, new, etc. I have been using this activity for many years and what I do know is if you give your students the opportunity to share out, they will absolutely surprise you!
