8 Reasons to Start Using Exit Tickets

8-reasons-to-start-using-exit-tickets

Have you been searching for ways to assess your student’s understanding of your lessons? An easy way to do this is by using exit tickets. Contrary to what some people may think, exit tickets are not tests, but definitely are a way to measure your student’s comprehension of that day’s topic. Exit tickets may look different each day, but if used correctly they can be a driving force for your curriculum.

When used routinely, exit tickets can support data-driven instruction by providing information on where students are performing and what modifications need to be made. Let’s be honest, “data-driven instruction” is one of the most important phrases in education today.

In addition, not only will you impress your administration, but you’ll also be able to use this information to differentiate instruction to your students. As I always say, it’s better to have too much data than not enough data!

In this episode I share:
  • How word problems can enhance literacy skills
  • 4 ways you can move beyond word problems to practice reading and writing skills
  • Realistic examples for the suggested strategies
  • Which reading skills can be targeted through word problems
