Reflection: Exit Tickets Folktales: Exploring the Genre - Section 6: Closure


I want students to consider what they don’t yet know about the genre and what they would still like to learn. By giving them only the “Why?”, “How?”, and “I Wonder?” stems from which to choose, I ensure that their questions will elicit answers more complex than one or two words. Their responses will serve two purposes. First, they will show me which students are able to craft critical questions and which need additional practice. Next, I will use their responses to help select texts and plan small group and mini-lessons. The more specific students’ questions, the better I can plan for future instruction.
