Reflection: Exit Tickets Creating a Summer Review Packet (Day 1) - Section 2: Active Engagement

This activity was devised as a cumulative exit ticket of the year's work.  I didn't want to just give a huge test, or ask the kids to play fact games to just fill time.  During the final days of school, it is hard for all of us to focus and work on meaningful lessons.

My students were totally engaged in this activity, which was rigorous and student owned.  The fact that these would be printed and sent home with over 100 students for the summer added a nice dose of expectation and accountability.

This is the first year I have thought of this activity, and I will use it every year.  The amount of review, discussions, questioning, planning, and presenting was fabulous.

I may even have my students next year write unit reviews!
