In preparation for going back to the classroom I watched a lot of teacher preparation videos on The Teaching Channel. As I watched, The Spotlight Method: End of Lesson Assessment I love the idea of getting students to tell me where they are with their understanding of the lesson. The idea is there are 3 circles like a street light and the students fill out a sticky note completing the following statement: Today, I learned…(green circle) Today, I considered…(yellow circle) or Today, my learning stopped because… (red circle).
I made my signs today. I will laminate and hang tomorrow! They are about 11″ round so many kids can add sticky notes per class.
