Quoting from the post:

I mean, when was the last time you stumbled across a middle schooler who LOVED -- all caps on purpose -- ANY handout that had to do with school?

But it's true: My students -- who I surveyed last week in an attempt to gather some feedback about the unit overview sheets that my learning team developed together -- really dig the tool that we're using to give them opportunities to reflect on what they're learning.

Bill Ferriter suggests a different way to share objectives with students through the use of an Overview Sheet. What is an Overview Sheet. Ferriter states it is a  "one-page handout that includes a list of every objective that students need to master written in student-friendly language.  The handout also includes unit vocabulary and a few essential questions designed to spark thinking and start conversations."

An example of one is provided in the post (which you may download and you see part of in the image) as is a download where he shares students thoughts on self assessments. This may be something you would like to try with your students.

I loved the Unit Overview sheets, and how students rate their mastery of the objectives.

This may not be tech, but it fits perfectly for the new interactive text books!
