Article Summary The article discusses the effect of opportunity to respond techniques, more specifically guided notes, choral responding, and response cards, on student performance. The theory behind opportunity to response techniques that is provided by the article is that if one was to increase student responses and engagement in a learning activity there would be an increase student performance, in other words: seeing that it is said that “students learn by doing, if one increases the doing, the result is an increase in learning”. Some of the benefits of increasing opportunity to respond techniques that the authors proposed included: more productive time spent of engaged learning, less time spent off-task, less disruptive behavior, and greater teacher involvement. Guided notes allowed for the student to be more engaged in class because they had to follow the material being taught in order to take effective notes, which also acted as a studying mechanism, and it allowed for the teacher to remain on task.
