Check for Understanding

Check for Understanding | Instructional Strategies for Pan American | Scoop.it

Under the Common Core State Standards teacher will address fewer standards in more depth. In addition, students must use high-order thinking, argumentative writing, and application to real-world situations. Frequent checks for understanding must become a normal part of instruction in every classroom every day.-Mel Riddile

 

"As teachers we create conditions for our students to learn. As we plan it is critical to create opportunities that keep students engaged in the learning process.

 

The outcome of this process is to determine if students have reached our learning targets. In order to know if students have learned the concept(s) taught, formative assessment data should be collected to check for our students’ understanding. These can be short preplanned activities that serve as a closure to a specific lesson.

The data collected will help develop the your next steps."

 

Where are my students headed? Where are they right now? How can I close the gap between where they are and where I want them to be?
