27 Simple Ways To Check For Understanding ~ TeachThought

27 Simple Ways To Check For Understanding ~ TeachThought | Standards, Instruction, and Teaching in Practice | Scoop.it

"Checking for understanding is the foundation of teaching.Whether you’re using formative assessment for data to personalize learning within a unit, or more summative data to refine a curriculum map, the ability to quickly and easily check for understanding is a critical part of what you do. (Which was the idea behind our post last March, “10 Assessments You Can Perform In 90 Seconds Or Less.”)

 

"The following infographic Mia MacMeekin offers up 27 additional ways to check for understanding. Some aren’t necessarily quick–”Test what you learned in a new situation”–but there are a dozen or more other ideas that are worth adding to your teacher toolbox, many of which aren’t content-related, but rather cognitively-related (Locate 3 people who agree with your point of view.)"

iPad Apps for Math Intervention

iPad Apps for Math Intervention | Standards, Instruction, and Teaching in Practice | Scoop.it

"Over the past few months I’ve been experimenting with guided math strategies in my classroom. One station in my classroom has been dubbed as the technology table. This table has been primarily used to differentiate instruction to improve students’ understanding of mathematical concepts. I’ve been using the tech table for the past few months with great success. There are five iPad apps that are used at this table. Unlike many math apps that offer only demo versions, I’ve found the below apps to be useful in the classroom."

"Rubrics are an extremely useful classroom evaluation tool, though many teachers these days aren’t using them anymore, and don’t think they are necessary. The lovely graphic below from Mia MacMeekin takes a look at rubrics and why they should be used and what they can improve, along with a little guide for teachers on rubrics."

Even as grad student this year, rubrics were very helpful - just imagine how much they can help kids!

Chris Carter's comment, May 20, 2014 7:32 PM
Thank you, John Evans. I live on rubrics. I find their clarity removes the, "because he doesn't like me" from the conversation. In my more elevated moments, I appreciate that rubrics communicate al of my expectations with a clarity and specificity that "just telling" the kids never achieves.
