This Daily Learning Goal/Self Assessment Handout is something I use EVERYDAY in the classroom. It supports the Marzano Model of Teaching and is a way for each student to be responsible for knowing what the daily goal is. I was tired of having administrators visit my classroom and asking that one student in the class what they were learning and what level they were at on the subject AND the student not being able to remember or give an answer. So as soon as the students come into the class they record the daily learning goal. At the end of each period they record how well they understand the goal. It also gives a space for the student to record what they do or don´t understand about the lesson. This encourages them to actually think about their response. The students use different color coded highlighters to circle how they feel about the lesson´s objective. For example green can be for a level 4 and pink for a level 1. The last 5 minutes as I am walking around answering homework questions I scan for the low level colors to see if I can clarify the lesson. If I have time I try to ask all levels 1 and 2 to see me at my desk for a "cita" so we can get them up to a level 3. Every 2 weeks the student receives a new handout. Week 1 is on the front and Week 2 is on the back. There is also a place to record information for weekly quizzes and/or tests if applicable for that week.
I refer to the handout as the student´s ¿Qué sé? chart. (What do I know?)
THIS HANDOUT RESULTS IN HIGH STUDENT MONITORING MARKINGS! :)
