Reflection: Student Feedback Making Inferences From Fossils - Section 3: Wrap-up


I love the use of 3-2-1 as an exit strategy.  Not only is it easy but it provides some great insight into what students respond to throughout a lesson.  This is only effective if the information provided is used to improve the lesson, either by building up the "interesting" or adding in the "I wonders".  I am always surprised by the insightful answers that the students provide.
