Rally Coach In Rally Coach, students are paired and take turns practicing a skill while the other is a coach and then they reverse the roles. Rally Robin Students are assigned a topic by the teacher. The teacher tells students which student starts. Then students take turns sharing ideas or answers. Quiz Quiz Trade Above students are engaged in an activity titled Quiz Quiz Trade. During this activity students are moving around the room asking questions and praising classmates. At any one time, 50% of students are actively engaged. This activity is used during math, reading, writing, science, social studies and team / class building activities. Mix Pair Share Students mix around to music. When music stops, students pair up with closest person to them. Teacher tells students who goes first in their pair and students either turn take or have a specific amount of time they share.
