Reflection: Quizzes Comprehension through Performance: How was Tea Involved in the Boston Massacre? - Section 4: Closing the Loop


I love that my students had a great time with this activity, but I also realize that my purpose is to educate and insure that my students have the knowledge of the subject matter. That's why I had them complete the review page and questions. Positive was that I could determine where they were at and what I needed to review with those who had lower understanding - negative was that it took a longer period of time to complete. I debated splitting it into two days but felt a need to give them the advantage of using their current understanding gained from the play to help with their responses. This also gave me a way to compare my own notes with their responses on who paid attention and had good listening skills and who did not.

You could also give them a shorter exit ticket on info from the play to see who was listening and learned, too:)
