Give your students who already know a different way to solve problems or who figure out a new way to correctly solve problems the opportunity to demonstrate that they understand what you have taught and can correctly solve problems that way and then demonstrate a different strategy they would like to use instead. This form will allow students to demonstrate their knowledge through a work sample that shows they understand the required method (so you can file the evidence of knowledge). This form also allows you to evaluate the student’s other method to make sure it is valid and determine whether they can use that one instead.
I find this idea useful when a student picks up a concept quickly and figures out a quicker/more innovative way to complete a problem.
There are copies of the form in this product that contain clip art in color, clip art in black and white, and no clip art.
Clipart in this product is from the following Teachers Pay Teachers Stores:
