Reflection: Student Ownership Types of Tissues - Section 3: Assessment


Taking the time at the end of the lesson to revisit the student created list of tissue functions is a very important component of the lesson. This revisiting of student thinking serves three functions; developing student ownership of the science content, assimilating new knowledge into students' current frameworks, and addressing misconceptions. Since students generated the list, they feel a great deal of ownership over the content. They are proud of their answers and take delight in connecting their thinking to a body system. Going back to the list after building knowledge allows students to make sense of their new learning and to connect their ideas with specific tissue types. Revisiting the list also allows myself or the students to correct any misconceptions that students may hold.
