Assessing within a Lecture
What are some ways that you check for understanding within a lecture to make it more engaging?

Lectures are not engaging. However, they are sometimes necessary. I usually give students some time to research a topic with specific "look for" questions for specific web sites before we have a discussion. Students work with partners and they get to share what they learned with the rest of the class. They must also ask 2 questions about the topic at the end of their short presentation. Students know in advance that I am looking for speaking and listening skills and that I may use some of the questions on the end of the unit assessment.
You can create a short power point at the end where there are 10 items and they require short answers. Use it like an exit ticket to clear up any misconceptions for the next day.
