#### Critical thinking exit slips - engages students before the bell and makes learning meaningful while wrapping up the lesson

#### This idea could be modified for any class. An easy informal assessment tool.

#### Need a succinct way to tie up a lesson and make it meaningful to students? Looking for an activity to engage students a few moments before the bell is going to ring? Exit slips are a great way for students to summarize what they learned during class for themselves -- and for the teacher! My exit slip resource contains four separate exit slips with different question prompts. Each slip has two questions that ask students to summarize, judge, decide, comment, or expand on skills and knowledge that the lesson covered. Two of the slips could be applied to any subject. One slip is specific to novel study. One exit slip has been left as a blank template so that you can think of your own, specific question prompts. They are a great way for students to independently think about what they learned. And, when the teacher collects them as the students are exiting the classroom, they are a great way for the teacher to gauge the learning of the students. Each exit slip features a related basic image, which helps to support visually-inclined learners. These images also add to the attractive aesthetic and readability of the slips. They are very professionally designed. Although this is a resource that I use in high school classrooms, they could also be applied to junior high or even older elementary school-aged children.
