## Reflection: Accountability Before or After - Section 3: Practice the Concept

I often use the "I Have, Who Has" game in my classroom for a number of reasons.  First, the game requires active listening by all students.  It is important for the students to be listening to all participants so that they know when it is their turn.  There have been times when I have encountered students who listen only for their turn, and then tune out.  If I find that this is a problem I may have the students use their whiteboards to write the number that answers the question in order to ensure that all students are remaining actively engaged.  Secondly, I use the game to have the students practice a particular skill.  It is a great, quick way to practice this concept.
