Equity Sticks | Equity in the Classroom | Student Questioning

Equity Sticks and Calling Sticks: Equity sticks are an easy and
fun engagement protocol to randomly call on all students. Get a box of Popsicle sticks or index cards and use a Sharpie and put the student's name on each stick, place them into a cup or jar next to a second discard cup, the discard cup can be used for the "used Equity Sticks, but many teachers use other methods." When student have been called, don't let your students know or see they are not in the question mix, if they know they are one and done, they will check-out. Students need to think they always have a chance of being called on again. Equity sticks are an equatable cold calling technique for random questioning that is non-biased and not dependent on hand raising. Students are more engaged if you ask the class to do a Think-Pair-Share before going to your equity sticks. Another helpful use for equity sticks is quickly placing students in cooperative groups, random student pairs, mixed abilities groups. Any time you conduct a class discussion, pull your equity sticks out and start the active thinking and engagement. Place student in random pairs and have them share with a partner before they share with the class. Once all your students have participated, have all students share what they learned and have them praise each other.
