Small or Mid-Sized Classes:

In small or mid-sized classes, have everyone in the room say one to two words about how they are doing that day (are they tired, happy, excited, nervous?).

Large Classes:

In very large classes you can use iClickers to do a multiple choice check in. Ask students to pick one of six options that best reflects how they feel that day. Options could include good, tired, overwhelmed, excited, stressed, happy etc. Alternatively, invite students to share their response with the person beside them.
