2015 Fall | The Social Mixer

"Warm Up, Wake Up, Wrap Up"
Friday, November 13, 2015, 2-4:30 pm
School of Education Auditorium

Do you use quick, exciting, interactive activities designed to get students to mingle with their peers, change partners, and talk to new people? We welcome teaching ideas that seek to "mix it up": tricks and tips that keep classroom energy high and encourage students to get out of their seats and talk to others! These five minute activities designed for a cognititive shift (change of pace) might be ice-breakers, warm-ups, bridges, time-fillers, quick games, or closing activities. Warm up, wake up, wrap up -- we welcome it all!
