Exit passes are an effective type of formative assessment as they give you a quick "snapshot" of what the student has understood at the end of your class. This product contains 15 different exit passes (11 of which can be used for ANY subject area, while 4 are subject specific to Math, English, Science, and Social Studies).
How To Use: 1. As a formative assessment to see if students understood a concept. 2. As a way for students to ask questions about something they didn't understand (which I can address or "tweet back" the next day) 3. As a way for students to tell the teacher something they found interesting.
Differentiate homework & give students choice... Students choose when to do deliberate practice in math 20 min. [review (meet expectations) or take on a challenge (exceed expectations), & in literacy [write for 60 min./week & read for 60 min./week.] Logging what they have done & showing their progress to the teacher throughout the week is mandatory.
