Reflection: Diverse Entry Points Q-A-R - Understanding Where, Why, and What to Look For - Section 3: Independent Learning


In the past, I often had students respond to questions in writing on paper. This can cause "paper-pencil panic" as I call it, especially for struggling students. They stare at their papers and struggle to get started. They’re afraid of writing something down and getting it wrong because of the permanence of their answers. When I switched to having students use their individual whiteboards, they were more confident in writing responses, and their responses were better. So great! I may never go back to paper and pencil.
