Assess your students’ understanding after every lesson! Hang these documents on your door or near the exit of your classroom. Wrap-up your lessons with an assessment question. Have students record answers to these questions on sticky notes and post them near the sign. Remember to keep questions specific, only those in which answers can be provided within the space of a sticky note and were discussed within the lesson taught.
After school, or sometime before the next class, review your students’ answers. This allows you to identify if you need to focus on a topic more, or if your students’ have grasped the concept and are ready for more.
Can be used with all grade levels in a variety of ways. All you have to do is modify your questions depending on the capabilities of your students. Can be used in small group instruction too!
Also included: a way to organize your sticky notes! For middle or high school classrooms, in which teachers go from one class to the next, it can be hard to manage the sticky notes. To resolve this issue, teachers can simply use the organizers provided. Depending on your school’s class schedules, there are two options provided, block and period scheduling. Simply have students stack their notes on top of one another on their spot on the poster. This gives you the ability to check them when you have the time and not rushing to do so before your next class.
