Precise Advice


Tip: Precise Advice

How do I do it?
Give students a resource (wall chart, laminated bookmark, desk placard etc.) to support them in being precise and include a check list appropriate to the grade level and language proficiency of the student.  If the bookmark or placard is laminated, students can use a dry erase pen to check off the tasks they completed.  If you leave space for more items, students can add them at the bottom of the checklist.  For example a 2nd-6th grade bookmark might include:

Did you...

__ explain the meaning of symbols?

__ write the unit of measurement?

__ label all drawings and models?

__ check your calculations?

__ describe the steps (first, second etc.)?
