Reflection: Continuous Assessment Aarrr, Landlubber! It's Time to Swab the Deck or Read Closely! Pirate Week Day 2 of 5 - Section 4: Story Questions


I never seem to sit!  I don't have a "desk" in my room, and that's often the first question I get from visiting adults.  Walking around the room gives me an opportunity to have continuous assessment.  This kind of assessment drives my lessons from day to day.  I can't always get to grade every paper, every night, so I rely on my first hand experiences as I walk the room.  This also helps the students stay focused.
