Reflection: Student Ownership Biographies Assessment - Section 2: Biographies Assessment


This assessment turned out to be more of a great lesson than I had even hoped for.  I had told the students to make sure that they kept all their notes from this unit in a safe place.  I also had told them that they would be able to use their notes on the assessment so they needed to be careful and take good notes.  There were several students who did not have their notes today. It was a great teaching moment.  I was able to ask the class after the assessment what they had learned.  Many of them raised their hands and said, "I learned to keep track of important papers." or "I learned to take good notes."  I love that they learned these lessons and are taking ownership for their own learning.
