Entry Ticket

This technique (sometimes called Warm-Up, Do Now or Bell Ringer) gets students working as soon as they enter the classroom, increasing instruction time. Students are given Entry Tickets as they arrive at the door, follow the instructions, and complete the task immediately.  Entry Tickets are an effective strategy for monitoring student learning and introducing or reviewing instruction.
