- Assessment Types:
- Interviews, Observations, Written responses
Students write responses on Portable Whiteboards as requested by the teacher, then hold the whiteboards up in the air to be visible by the teacher. The teacher looks at all of the individual responses and provide feedback to individuals. Then address the anticipated response, and additional interesting responses that are provided. Then the teacher moves on in the lesson, perhaps using the whiteboard additional times in the lesson as appropriate.
