https://www.polleverywhere.com/ is a website that allows students to respond to a question using ther cell phones. You create the question (can be in any format-multiple choice, t/f, open-ended etc.) and students text a code that corresponds to their answer. Answers are collected (and shown) in real time and can be displayed for the class in a variety of formats.
Starting class-Putting a regents question on the tv and have students respond-By seeing the repsonses immediately you can easily identify misconceptions and ideas/words students are having trouble with and address them.
Use as a closer- Same idea
Use for a discussion/debate starter- Pose a controversial question and see students reactions- its nice because its anonymous so there is no fear of having an unpopular position

mpeterson: Mr. Brooks used a similar site in a lesson I observed. A great way to engage the class (and they really get into it).
