One of my favorite self-assessments for students is to have them tell me what their "muddy areas" are. What areas are confusing about the current lesson or unit.
With the muddy area poster, it's a quick, fun and easy way to have students let you know what areas they find confusing.
Hang this poster on the door or on the wall near the door and allow students to jot down the things that confuse them on a sticky note.
I also have laminated a larger version of this and allowed students to write directly on the poster with dry erase markers.
This poster is very large and high quality so it will not look distorted if printed on large paper.
