Tip: Exit Stickies
How Do I Do It?
Ask students to name and date their sticky. Then, have them write 1-3 things that they learned on it and hand it to you at the end of a lesson, class, day, unit, or week. Use the information gathered to either document student learning (slap the sticky on the student’s assessment folder or portfolio) and/or assess student understanding in preparation for your future planning or reteaching plans.
Variations & Extensions
Other prompts include: How could you use what you learned in real life? Today, I didn’t understand... Write one question you have. I wish... Post the exit stickies and categorize them (you may want to make them anonymous for this variation) and discuss with students what you need to teach more and celebrate successes. For lower proficiency students, direct them to use a smiley face, flat face, frown face, question mark, or other symbol system in relation to their understanding of concepts and lessons.
