Reflection: Checks for Understanding Where did you learn that? - Section 3: Closure


It was fun to watch the kids get excited when I let them select the piece they wanted to work with, and it helped engage them in the activity and keeping them focused in gaining information. I saw good examples of close reading. After the lesson, I pondered how to assess their mastery of the standard. The District assessments are still linked to the previous standards and measure whether the students can answer questions, but I want to determine if my lessons are leading my students to mastery of the skills embedded within the standards. In this case, for example, I wanted to know whether they would continue to pay attention to both pictures and text, when faced with new expository material, and if they could tell me what they had learned from each feature. I decided that for evaluation I would need to give them all the same text, and created a test for this. I downloaded a book about seasons (Changing Seasons) from www.readinga_z and gave them the quiz you can see in the resource section.
