Reflection: Exit Tickets Winter Holidays: Pulling it all Together - Section 5: Determining a Theme


This activity serves multiple purposes. It helps to practice students’ comparing skills, asks students to think critically about how topics that seem unrelated can have similarities, and asks them to explain their thinking by using proof from texts and discussions with others. It also will show how well students researched their own topics and chose their interview questions. It serves well as a check-in before the assessment all while practicing their speaking and listening skills.
