Reflection: Checks for Understanding Name Towers - Section 5: Exit Ticket


When I find a paper that has names listed in the wrong columns, I keep an eye on both the owner of the paper and the signers because the signer obviously was confused in the comparison of name towers and the owner did not correct the signer. I watch through the next few lessons to make sure the issue is cleared up for both parties. If the misconception continues to surface, I meet with them in a small group for further direct instruction and guided practice.
