One of the best things about teaching is the fresh start we get each year. No matter how good or not-so-good it was last year, it's all new again. Full of opportunities.
We started back today; kids will be back on the 17th.
Two of my goals for this year:
- Try some different forms of formative assessment. I've fallen into a rut. I especially want to work on using exit tickets to inform my instruction.
- Branch out with some of the online assessments I use. I used Socrative, Quizlet Live, and Quizziz last year. I used Kahoot! some too, but have given that up. My kids didn't take it seriously; it was all about winning the game, and the review :( How can I make using them even better?
I have created quite a few generic exit tickets to use with any content, and I will be working on more all year.
