Reflection: Exit Tickets Awesome Bird Traits - Section 5: Class Discussion/Wrap up


Using an exit ticket gives me a quick way to check for understanding and helps me plan for future instruction. One of my favorite exit tickets is the 1 minute, 1 pencil, 1 question format. I set the timer and each student in a group gets 1 minute to write down their thoughts on a question. The students can either explain their own thinking, or build on what someone else has offered. The whole process takes no more than 5-6 minutes, but the information I glean from this process is invaluable to me. After I collected the exit tickets, I also gave students an opportunity to share with the class what they had written and I have included some samples in the Wrap Up.
