Take Off, Touch Down
Learners stand and sit to answer questions as the teacher polls the group.
Take Off-Touch Down is better than Raise a Hand. Our brains consume 20% more oxygen when we stand and the blood that pools in our seat and feet is moved up to the brain. Blood contains oxygen.
- Teacher makes a statement.
- Learners to whom the statement applies stand up ("Take Off").
- Those to whom it does NOT apply remain seated.
- Teacher makes the next statement:
- Standing learners: If a statement applies, remaining standing; otherwise sit down ("Touch Down").
- Seated learners: If statement applies, stand up; otherwise remain seated.
