This lesson is one that has to be built by the individual teacher. I say this because only the teacher and the data can determine what should happen during a lesson such as this. For this reason, I am simply providing some insight as to the best method, that I have found, in regard to reviewing for an assessment.
Preparing to Review:
Designing Tailor Made Review:
I create altered versions of the station for those of my students who are struggling. i do this to help cultivate independence and minimize the students' dependence on me, the teacher, and their higher achieving peers. When students are able to figure problems out on their own, it builds their confidence, making them more likely to "Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them," during this review day. Furthermore, in building their confidence, students will be more likely to attempt and be willing to struggle through problems that they encounter in the future.
Those who are higher achieving students will receive a challenging task of some sort to stretch their thinking and foster a deeper understanding of the concept.
During the Review:
Here are a few ideas to help you determine the best way to review the concepts presented in this unit:
Consider the standards of this unit. This unit deals with the understanding of positive and negative rational numbers and their relationship to the number line and the coordinate plane. Decide upon ways that you can present the material of this unit in different ways that will help your students review for the upcoming assessment. For example...
Some stations that you could create to review this unit could include the following:
These are just some suggestions as to what can be done to set up stations for this unit. Understand that whatever you do should be based upon data that you have gathered about your students. This data should come from multiple sources (i.e. observation, discussion, homework, quizzes, tickets out the door, classwork... etc.).
