Reflection: Checks for Understanding Metamorphic Rocks I - Section 3: Properties of Metamorphic Rocks


Another important method of checking for understanding that I do is to use popsicle sticks during the lesson. It's generally quick, super easy, and provides a great level of student accountability. If necessary, I sometimes discreetly label the popsicle sticks themselves to get a sampling of student abilities when I ask clarifying questions during the lesson. Additionally, this role is occasionally passed off to a student (they love to do this) - which is a great reward/incentive for students to earn (or rotate as part of an ongoing classroom job).
