Fact or Fiction

This may be a familiar cooperative learning strategy for some of you, with many ways to use.  After giving students a task, they write two correct answers and one incorrect.  Not only do students have to come up with correct answers, but they are using higher level thinking when coming up with an answer that is incorrect.

This is a fun strategy for my students.  They love to stump each other and equally love it when their teammate is unable to stump them!


Have you used Fact or Fiction?  What other ways could you use it?
