Darin's Story (HS ELA)

High school English teacher Darin Hallstrom uses Formative to make sure each of his students gets an opportunity to share their thinking and receive feedback. Many of his students used to be in an English Learners class:

"In the photo, I was using Formative to ask students to respond to grammar-based prompts, and then using the Live Results to offer feedback.The data is important, but I strive for feedback.

They struggle with language. I'm motivated to help them write well and speak well - often! The students relish the immediate, anonymous feedback. Many are laptop-averse, yet Formative is easy to use and beneficial to their learning."
