Pepper – A teacher tosses questions to a group of students quickly, and they answer back. The teacher does not slow down to engage or discuss an answer. (If answer is wrong, teacher asks the same question to another student) Pepper is easily confused with Cold Call; differences are: you can call on volunteers if you prefer, almost always asks quick fundamental questions, is a game.
