Reflection: Checks for Understanding Horizontal Kinematics - Section 4: Closure & Homework

There are so many ways to be creative about assessment, and something that used to stress me has now become one of my favorite parts of a lesson to plan.  Exit tickets, journaling, student conferencing....the list is endless!  Today my stellar students get 2 different formative assessments:  homework and partner sharing.  The homework helps the students to individually assess how they are internalizing the material and their level of preparedness for the AP exam.  The partner sharing also allows them to self-reflect (during the initial quiet time) and consider how they compare to other students in the class.  The list of informal assessments that occur by me are also endless - today alone they included observing student conversations, asking students to share their thoughts with me, and listening to student responses to my probing questions.
