Reflection: Exit Tickets Controversies in Genetics - Multiday Project - Section 5: Project Work Days


As another way to have accountability, particularly at the beginning of the project where each member of a team was studying something different, I instituted the "One thing I found surprising today" Edmodo post. I posted this exit ticket 10 minutes before class ended, and asked students to write a simple statement. This exit ticket took on a life of it's own, as students were eagerly awaiting the post so they could "share out". This simple exercise allowed me to another way to check in with every student without having to interview them separately, and tells me what the students find most interesting about what they are doing. Here are some samples:
