If you’re like a lot of teachers, you recognize that the digital classroom has a lot to offer, but you’re still a little unsure of how it will work for you. Whether you’re in a 1:1 environment or still taking your class to the computer lab once in awhile, there are so many benefits—for you and your students—once you get started!
One of my favorite features of the Google Classroom is the ability to link to authentic texts (news articles, primary sources, blog posts, videos) without worrying about printing the articles—saving both copy costs and copyright violations! This feature opens up a whole new world of reading for our students; however, it can also result in quite a bit of work if you try to create response activities for each authentic text.
To make this easier, I’ve adapted my best-selling Higher Order Thinking across the Curriculum: Formative Assessment Exit Slips for use in the digital classroom. With these exit slips, teachers have 30 different response options to meet their goals with each text/assignment.
Use this free sample to experiment with the process of downloading, assigning, and evaluating a digital exit slip. If you like this one, know that you can come back to my TpTstore and purchase the whole set to give you 29 more student- and teacher-friendly options for formative assessment within the digital classroom.
