Reflection: Student Self-Assessment Presentations: Learning to Say What We Wrote - Section 4: Closing the Loop


Some of the struggles I noticed this year with my students in creating their note cards were messiness (making it difficult for them to read their cards), lower understanding of their topic (making it difficult for them to determine what to write about), and lack of motivation (rushing and not writing enough on their cards because they didn't want to exert the effort or time) and writing too much (word for word out of their reports) so that they couldn't read their cards. To help them self assess their areas of weakness I had them practice presenting to friends and then discussing ways they could improve their cards. As soon as I had them read aloud and try to present - most identified their mistakes and realized they needed some help in making them more "user-friendly". I needed to have parent helpers assist with rewriting some of their cards because of the length of time it takes to review each report and pull out the main ideas and details. Could be something you send home to have student's parents help with?
