To allow the students time to review their notes before the assessment, I will allow them about 10 minutes to review their notes or study with a friend or use their Shoulder Partners.
This gives them to chance to fit any last minute cramming in before the assessment. It is also a good way to relax their nerves a bit. By working with a friend, it may alleviate some of the stress they are feeling.
I will allow them about 10 minutes to prepare.
Over the course of the last few days we have spent a lot of time working with dramas. The students have looked at all the elements of a drama and have had plenty of opportunity to apply the skills needed to read, act out, and comprehend a drama. Now, it is time to demonstrate their knowledge.
I will ask the students if they have any last minute questions or need clarification on anything before passing out the assessment.
I will pass out the assessment and read through the directions. Next, I will allow the students 25 minutes to complete the assessment. As they are working, I will circulate the room and answer any questions I can.
Once the students have finished the assessment, I will have them fill out a reflection handout. This will allow them to process the information learned throughout this unit, reflect on their progress, and share out any concerns they have with moving forward.
I can use these reflection pieces in their portfolios or as a guide for planning future lessons.
