Use the 230 ENTRY and EXIT ticket choices across the curriculum and throughout the school year with any content topic to promote critical thinking, review content material, differentiate instruction, and collect data as a formative assessment for instructional decision making. Because the entry and exit ticket questions span a wide range of readiness and difficulty levels, this resource can be used to differentiate instruction in Grades 4-12. Project the 82 slides or print them and use them in a literacy center or during whole group instruction. Use the entry tickets as bell ringers or as a classroom management strategy at the beginning of class to focus students on the topic of the day and invite students to recall background or prior knowledge relevant to the topic of the lesson. Use the exit tickets to collect feedback on students’ understanding, afford students an opportunity to reflect on what they have learned, and help students synthesize and integrate information learned during class. The tickets are organized according to the domains of Bloom's Taxonomy and include questions which prompt remembering, understanding, applying, analyzing, evaluating, and creating information.

Although these resource materials were designed to be used primarily before and after instruction, most of the activities and ticket questions could be used during instruction, as well. The materials, tickets, and activities can be used multiple times throughout the year as you cover different content. The frequent use of this resource will help students master critical thinking vocabulary, practice critical thinking skills, and transfer learning to new situations. Thank you so much and all the best. A 10-slide preview is available.
