Reflection: Unit Exams September 11 Summative Assessment - Section 1: Assessment Day


I've just finished grading the students' assessments for this unit.  They were not as successful as I would have hoped.  Looking back, I should have included these concepts in their Interactive Student Notebook- I mean they were ELA concepts.  The reason I didn't was because teaching September 11 is not necessarily in my curriculum- I just found a creative way to teach my CCSS within it.  And, I was trying to have the Interactive Student Notebook reflect the order in which the CCSS were taught and these standards were not in order with the rest of my ELA curriculum. Looking back, I should have done the left side/ right side pages so students had more time to process.  I kind of hurried this unit along.  

Now, I will go back and revisit the standards as they come later and include them in my notebooks, but I feel like if the students would have had something to look back at- a tool to help them- then their grades would have been better.  It's a good thing I believe in letting them make corrections!!
