Tips for using Science World in the classroom.

For a fun way to check students' reading comprehension, Bill Fager, 7th-grade science teacher at Transfiguration School in New York City, suggests:

After students have read the assigned articles, have each of them write one quiz-type question about the stories on an index card. Then, collect the cards and divide the class into teams. Use the questions to stage a game-show-like contest between the groups. The winning team gets a small reward like bonus points.
