Reflection: Exit Tickets Reaching the Summit: Mountains and Nonfiction Text Features (Left Side) - Section 3: At the Summit: Exit Ticket


Now, let me start this by saying that I almost always give a pretest and usually I know before I give it if they know anything or not based on the skill.  Nonfiction Text Features, however, did not turn out that way- at least I don't think so.  

As I looked at the completed exit tickets, I don't know if it was the day's lesson or prior knowledge that helped them show improvement.  Sometimes I think kids need their memories jogged because they don't want to think that hard to remember, but if I jog their memories first, am I tainting the results of the pretest??  I don't know the answer to that- it's just a wonder I have.

Regardless, the students did a much better job on the exit ticket than they did on the same question a half hour earlier so I guess no matter what I can hold on to that!!
