Spark Student Motivation-Kagan Style with Quiz-Quiz Trade!

I'm linking up this morning with Joanne @ Head Over Heels For Teaching for her...

My school became a "Kagan" School 3 years ago!  Kagan Cooperative Learning Structures are very powerful and have become embedded in every aspect of my instructional day.  One of my favorites is Quiz-Quiz Trade!  Students love it as well and don't even realize that they are studying!  

You can make Quiz-Quiz Trade cards for any subject/content area.  I used math vocabulary cards from our geometry unit this week as part of my review before the dreaded State Math Assessment!  Students really enjoyed themselves and feel more confident going in to take that test.  I wish I could share with all of you, but I don't want to break any copy write laws!  If you have not had Kagan Training it is well worth the time and money to attend a summer institute!  I also recommend ordering their materials from the Kagan Website!  

Have a Fun and Engaging Week!!


  1. My students love Quiz, Quiz, Trade too! When I give them choices for studying/reviewing, they usually pick this structure. It's motivating to get out of your seat and visit with your friends! Your new blog design looks awesome! Thanks for sharing and linking up!
