Reflection: Checks for Understanding Columbus Sticky Note Paraphrasing - Section 4: Sumarizing and Response


I had students use their stickies to create their summary and responses. Looking back, I would have also had my students attach their sticky notes to their writing. I began thinking later I could have used this to check how they were transferring their notes to their written ideas. It would have allowed me to check to see if they used their sticky notes or if they tried to still write from memory. 

Another idea, would be to have students attach their sticky notes to the section of their summary where they used their notes. This would signal what part they used that note and what evidence they were referring to.
