    The students of Ms. Amy Johnson at Kentwood High Magnet School take a hands-on approach to learning.  By using the program "Kahoot," students are able to interact with the lesson content and offer immediate feedback to the teacher.  This helps to demonstrate student understanding and increase engagement.
