## Reflection: Checks for Understanding Cause and Effect: CAUSE your own EFFECT - Section 2: Mini-Lesson

On the days that I use the Post-It Parking Lot, I am able to do a very quick formative assessment to see how well students have grasped the week’s strategy. At the end of Reader’s Workshop, when I’m looking for good examples to share, I am also scanning to see if there are any students that have misconceptions about the strategy. If so, I pull those sticky notes off and put them on the side so I can work with those students in a strategy group the next day. This gives me one more opportunity to re-teach and practice the strategy before they have to show understanding on the Guides we will use and grade at the end of the week. Post-It Parking Lot is also a great resource to use with Writer’s Workshop, Math Workshop, Science, and Social Studies by posting questions or problems that the students can respond to and post for quick, informal assessments.
