    Best whole class participation is to get pupils to write responses on mini-whiteboards and show at same time to teacher. Or to invest in an electronic voting system.

    I also quite like assigning labels to parts of the classroom e.g. true/false and then asking the class a series of questions based on the lesson, pupils must then go and stand under either the true or the false sign.
  3. Somewhere on the TES I found this 'hunt the treasure' thing. It's just a slide covered with small boxes. The kids click them and you might find a yellow dot (the treasure), a free go or another Q. It's fenomenal.
    Lately what I do with it is I divide the class into two teams, say after a writing activity, then I tell them one from each team has to read a sentence. If I'm satisfied with it, the person can click one box. If it's really good, maybe two, three or more. All of a sudden they all volunteer to read the sentence they wrote, and it works a treat with boys.
