Suck-O-Meter

engagesymbol.gif(pronounce it like barometer)
An imaginary tool to measure how potentially sucky a lesson, project, or class will be. Use liberally to test your ideas before implementing them in the classroom. Side note, you might want to develop separate Suck-O-Meters for different groups, for example boys, girls, socially adventurous, introverted, etc.

What would you put in each category?
