## Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines Fantastic Figures - Section 7: Exit Ticket

By incorporating writing into math, students have to justify their thinking. This is an area most students need more practice with. Most often, I have students write in their Interactive Notebook. Once in a while I like to change things up, and have students fill out an exit ticket.

An exit ticket is a technique to show you what students are thinking and what they have learned at the end of a lesson. Before getting ready for Science, students have to hand in a “ticket” filled out with an answer to a question, a solution to a problem, or a response to what they’ve learned. Exit Tickets help me assess if students have “caught what I taught”, and I use that to plan for the next lesson.
