Mini-whiteboards are an invaluable tool for teachers, as they both engage students and allow the teacher to check students’ understanding. Mini-whiteboards enable a teacher to see all written or drawn responses simultaneously. Teachers can then ensure that every student is participating and is academically accountable. Mini- whiteboards are a useful addition to any lesson that requires students to demonstrate their thinking via a written or drawn response, that is not required to be permanently saved. They are particularly useful during a daily review and the guided practice component of an explicit lesson.
