Students love Kahoot... but are they a little Kahooted out?!? Quizizz is a great alternative!
I love Kahoot too. It is great to give more CI and for formative assessments. Quizizz is very similar to Kahoot, but students can go at their own speed ----> easy differentiation! They are competing against each other, but at their own speed because the questions and answers are on their screens, not projected like Kahoot. Students can take their time to read, process, and answer questions. Also, you can do a variety of things with the settings, like turn off the "leaderboard," which makes students slow down. I also like to jumble the answers, usually not the questions because they are sometimes in order of the story.
I created a Quizizz for Arianne Dowd's "La Bicicleta" story (based on the song/video for the Shakira and Carlos Vives song). You can find the story on a free slideshow here (highly recommend the whole unit: example of Essential Questions and "I cans" here!). I will use this to give students more CI in a fun and engaging way.
