Reply To: Tracking Student Progress
Our curriculum is constantly having us check our students comprehension. After we give a mini lesson our students go with partners to find key details and main idea in passages. They are supposed to underline and annotate. Then we come back together and we discuss what they found. At this time I can glance and see who is underlining and annotating and are they underlining the whole thing or key parts? Then I send them to independently write down key details from the text or main idea depending on our mini lesson. These are like an exit ticket where I can usually see who is understanding and who is struggling.
We do like activities for sequence and comparing and contrasting.
