Reflection: Exit Tickets Light Sources - Section 3: Closure


I find it is important to use the "Off the Menu." technique because otherwise I will have students who just copy the other students responses. When students copy others responses it makes it very difficult for me to quickly assess if the student understands the concept or not.

By stating that once a student has used an item in their response it is unavailable for others to use, each student must think for themselves. This gives me a better check for understanding of each individual students abilities.

Of course this technique can only be used when there is a large answer pool to draw from. Another time when this technique could not be used is when you asking the students to provide you with an opinion as there maybe several students who hold the same opinion.
