Use a smily face scale to check the status, feelings or thoughts of your learners.


Often thoughts and feelings need to be addressed for learning to occur.  Use a scale simliar to this and have learners hold up their fingers or pictures of faces to give the teacher a sense and readiness of the group. 

A great tool to use after new learning, or before and after tests, or tragic events.

Use this as a conversation starter for small group or one-on-one discussion.
