Summarizers, Reflections, & Exit Slips
The other day I ran across an article on the categories of exit slips. As I had recently met with one of the coaches at our high school about the learning design model they are using, I had some ideas swimming around in my head about possible ways to use technology for exit strategies. Below is an excerpt from the article I found.
The 3 Categories
There are three categories of exit slips (Fisher & Frey, 2004):
Prompts that document learning,
(Example: Write one thing you learned today, Discuss how today’s lesson could be used in the real world.)
Prompts that emphasize the process of learning
(Example: I didn’t understand…, Write one question you have about today’s lesson.)
Prompts to evaluate the effectiveness of instruction
(Example: Did you enjoy working in small groups today?)
Other exit prompts include:
•I would like to learn more about…
•Please explain more about…
•The most important thing I learned today is…
•The thing that surprised me the most today was…
