“Do a formative assessment,” they said.
We already had an individual menu activity planned since it was that part of the unit where the kiddos are knowing enough different things that some need to just practice and some wanted to explore harder topics.
So I put a few problems from each menu item into one paper and then had them try them out and choose an appropriate item.
I sometimes worry about kiddos over-estimating themselves, but that’s what a challenge is, right?
What do you notice? What do you wonder?
