3 Self Checking Teacher Ideas
Teacher Trick 1

A student can easily tell which ones he or she got right or wrong.
Teacher Trick 2
Sheet protectors and more secret codes. I use a sheet protector to protect the printed sheet of paper and then laminate the smaller pieces of paper that match up to the (in this case) 12 turning points in World History. A student has to chronologically place the 12 turning points in order. Then, instead of me checking the work, I hand the student the key and the student can turn over each of the pieces to reveal a symbol. You can easily see which ones you got right and wrong!

Teacher Trick 3
This one is more difficult to make, but kids love it. It certainly makes multiple choice more fun 🙂 Create a one page multiple choice quiz… be sure to leave a at least a double space between answers. Use a different colored sheet and place it on top of the quiz. Mark a box around the right answer. This is where you are going to cut! Put the quiz paper in a good ol page protector.
