Reflection: Student Communication Review 6.EE.1, 6.EE.2, 6.EE.3, and 6.EE.4 - Section 3: Closure + Homework


Instead of giving this study guide out the day before the exam and in conjunction with some parent feedback, I decided to give this study guide out the week (5 days) before the test.  Students were instructed to do the problems they could and hold off on any of the problems they were unable to do because they hadn't received the instruction yet.  Now, you may think this is a bit crazy, but here's the good part.  Students have time to work on the study guide.  They have time to ask you about questions they don't understand.  They are learning to budget their time by being responsible for their own learning and understanding.  They no longer cram for the test the day before.  It really does teach them good study skills.  Kids ask for extra practice on problems they don't understand.  Generally, I send them to Buzzmath.  This website is free if you(teacher) set up an account.  It is aligned to common core.  

Furthermore, students need feedback on whether or not they are working out the problem correctly.  So, I created a video tutorial that goes along with the study guide.  I put this video on youtube and on Edmodo.  Students can then watch the video to check to see that they are working out the problems correctly.  Now, you may say that the students will just mark down answers.  To that I say, in order for them to get the answers, they had to listen to the video.   They heard something.  It's still processing.
