- Did they get it?
- How do they know?
- Did they do their best on that assignment? If not, why? If so, how do they feel?
SUPER TEACHER TIP! Wanna take this idea to the next level? Have students create the rubric for their next assignment. I suggest this practice on assignment structures you’ve done a lot of (like a writing piece or an ISN assignment) You’d be amazed at how quickly students remember all those little details on what makes an exceptionally good assignment.
Here’s my honest truth: I don’t.
Any one on one time a student receives with his teacher is valuable. Now imagine how valuable that time becomes when the teacher is going point by point on what the students did well and what they can do to improve.
