Reflection: Checks for Understanding James Forten: Multimedia in a Text - Say What? - Section 2: Teaching Strategy


After I model my thinking, I ask scholars how they feel doing the skill independently.  Scholars can give a thumb up ("I feel super confident"), a thumb to the side ("I feel a little hesitant to do this on my own"), or a thumbs down ("I am completely lost.  I need help immediately!).  This helps me and my ELL co-teacher to target groups and individuals with whom we need to conference before and during guided practice.  Scholars are usually very honest in their self-reflection because they want to do well on the weekly checklist work.  They know that they are responsible for completing the work and that I will grade it, therefore, they want to do well during the independent practice portion.
