Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Protein Synthesis, part 3 - Section 2: Concept Review


I've found it to be a helpful to build review time into the day after students have learned a lot of material.  Review days allow students to reinforce concepts in advance of a summative assessment when some may not prepare outside of class.  

I like to engage students in creative games and activities that allow me to assess how much students know so that I can adjust my instruction and assessment timeline when it becomes apparent that students are not prepared for the assessment.  Review also serves students because it allows them to reinforce concepts and self-assess themselves so that they will be able to make the necessary adjustments in their study to be successful on the assessment.

Review can also take the form of self-directed activities at stations.  This is also an effective review strategy because students are asked to self-assess themselves and work on the tasks at the stations where they know they lack clear understanding of concepts.  This type of review day works for students who are very self-aware.  Know your students. If students are not self-aware (as many are not), then they will need to be directed to the particular stations where they need reinforcement.  This type of direction comes from the teacher, after considering the formative assessments that have occurred before the review.
