I have taken CRISS training and used the Carousel strategy for a review of topics and the kids loved it. I am very excited to use this for an opening brainstorming session as well as a closing review after the reading, lecture, and group discussion activities (the group discussion will be in the form of a ppt Jeopardy game). I never thought of using this strategy as a brainstorming activity and since I have Accounting 1st period, this is a great way to wake-up 20 high school students and get them to start thinking about my subject at 7:30am. We will see how it works!
