Reflection: Exit Tickets How To Use a Microscope - Section 3: Exit Slip


Providing time for students to write is time well spent. Time helps students to process the information learned in the lesson and to think critically.

I like to use Exit Slips because it helps me to see what students have learned and what they are thinking. Here is what students learned about microscopes:

  • microscopes use light to look at tiny things.
  • how to use each part of the microscope and why it's important to use it correctly.
  • there are many important parts to a microscope.
  • how to use a microscope, what a specimen is, and parts of a microscope.
  • that you never want a microscope near the end of the table.
  • microscopes are high powered tools.
  • how to control a microscope.
  • how to focus a microscope.

I also asked student to rate their understanding of microscopes. Most students rated their understanding between 7 - 10 (with 10 being the best). Overall, I'd say...Success!
