#EduRead - 4/30/14 - The Many Uses of Exit Slips

Welcome again to #EduRead - the weekly twitter chat focused on an educational article. I hope each of you are enjoying the #EduRead chat because I know I am having a great time! I love that each article we've read has been full of great, easy-to-implement ideas! I need to figure out a way to organize my articles though.. right now I have them stuffed in a folder and I'm afraid I'll lose all of my annotations!

This Week's Article:
I can't wait to read and discuss this week's article: The Many Uses of Exit Slips. It is from the October 2012 issue of Educational Leadership magazine and the article definitely touches on so many useful topics, from classroom closure to formative assessment. Please join us this week and share your insights!

  1. I don't do routines well - and that includes exit slips. I confessed this in my blog Now I hope to learn from others how they make exit slips a priority.

  2. Here's a list of Exit Ticket prompts I ran across today:

    Looking forward to tonight's chat! :)

  3. I like a bunch of your prompts you posted. I'm really bad at remembering to include exit slips (even though I know you can do it at the spur of the moment). I have used an exit ticket in geometry every day this week. I think it really helps keep the kids invested, as they see good grades and feedback for tiny errors for each day's objective.

  4. I have been an on-off user of exit slips. But I always find them really useful! Here's a post I wrote about it.
