Fact or Fib Showdown is a great formative assessment strategy. Students have fun AND get feedback for learning “Fact or Fib Showdown!” (Kagan, 2009) Step 1: Step 2: Step 3: Step 4: Each person gets 2 Post-it notes. Write “fact” on one note and “fib” on the other. Hold one note in each hand – words toward your palm. The teacher will present a statement. Step 5: Participants decide if the statement is a fact or a fib. (5-10 seconds of wait time). Step 6: When the teacher says, “Showdown!” participants slap their answers down into the middle of the table. Step 7: Step 8: Compare and discuss answers. Teacher verifies and clarifies. (Kagan, 2009) If I teach a few word problems about money then I will meet the expectations of the new PFL strand.
