Sometimes, you get reminded about things that are great for teaching. Last week was one of those times for me as I stumbled across the Which One Doesn’t Belong website (http://wodb.ca/)
It’s got a whole load of ‘odd one out’ questions which have been carefully thought through so that any of the four could be the odd one out. Like this:
I really like these as they allow for some creativity but also hit the keywords, like factor, square and prime, while allowing students an opportunity to demonstrate their literacy skills by whether they can articulate what they mean clearly.
Of course, this is easily adaptable for other subjects too so I shared it in a staff briefing.
