Reflection: Student Ownership Nervous System Review - Section 2: Explain


I give each student a study guide a week before we review it in preparation for the summative assessment. A couple of days before the summative assessment, we review the study guide in class. I do not grade the students' study guides, but I expect them to be completed. A completed study guide benefits the student in a couple of ways.  First, it is the entrance ticket into lunch study sessions. Second, students may not ask about a question if they have not already made an attempt to answer the question.

To review the study guide, I have students pose a question to the class and then a classmate is expected to answer the question. I will confirm correct answers or continue probing until correct answers are achieved. I do not review all of the correct answers with the students, but I do ensure that they have the correct answers to the questions they ask in class. I have found that using this method of study helps encourage the students to think about the information on the study guide, attempt to answer the questions, and ask questions about material that is unclear.
