Hi Member,
We know it’s “that” time of year. Things are starting to come to a close, and it’s time to make sure your students have mastered all of the concepts you’ve been working on all year.
 
So, this week we’ve cooked up a few ways to make concept review meaningful and differentiated. Before we get to the videos, I want to give a shout out to one of our Tch Members, Isamari Cruz. She wrote a great comment after watching our video on using tiered exit cards in a math class.
 
 “I do not teach Math but while observing the video I started to think on different skills in Social Studies and History. I think that I can create tiered exit cards for skills like cause and effect, a short timeline, opinion vs. fact. This will help me identify quickly who might need reteaching.”
 
Thanks Isamari! We love that you are sharing how you plan to adapt this lesson idea for other subjects.
 
All three of our videos this week should adapt for several grade levels and subjects. Check them out, and let us know how you’re adapting them!

Here’s the video Isamari plans to adapt. Try tiered exit cards to differentiate and offer immediate feedback.
Here’s a strategy for increasing engagement and productivity with a timed “carousel” –where groups of students move through a lesson and learn from each other.
Get ‘em on their feet and get the blood flowing! Try using stations to help your students solidify understanding before a test.
This week, TeachingChannel.org passed 25,000 registered members. We'd like to give a big shout-out and say thanks to all of you for being part of the Tch community! We have an even bigger thank you planned for May. Details coming in a few weeks.
