Whether your state is using the Common Core Standards or not, you should know there exists a section in Common Core devoted to writing across the curriculum, which has always been a favorite topic for me to design professional development workshops around. I can tell you from experience that the non-English teaching instructors at your school see the value in having students write about social studies, science, math, and other curriculum areas, but the idea of grading and assessing this type of writing makes them hesitate when considering the implementation of writing routines in their classrooms.
After four years of witnessing the reality of non-implementation of writing across the curriculum strategies, I designed this training. An "Exit Ticket" is a quick piece of reflective writing completed by a student after a lesson that quickly demonstrates the depth at which the student is understanding the topic or the content. They can be assessed very quickly, used as review tools, and they can be assigned so that they appeal to a variety of learners. Of all my techniques I share during WAC trainings, Exit Tickets are the one I see implemented the most.
This is one of three of my workshops whose materials I offer for sale here at TPT. I designed these workshop materials to be usable by teacher trainers, implementation specialists, or determined teachers who simply want to learn a new strategy. Here are links the other workshops I sell at TPT:
1) My "Seven Elements of a Differentiated Writing Lesson" workshop
2) My "Critical Thinking about Writing" training materials, which includesall the popular sticky notes I have created for pre-writing, revision, and editing.
3) This page's "Exit Tickets across the Curriculum" workshop materials.
