      There are many ways you can use exit slips or Tickets Out the Door. The key is to not overuse any one way so that the students become bored and disinterested. Have you tried something like 3-2-1? You can do it different ways. For example, students write 3 things they learned in the lesson, 2 things they are still not sure about, and 1 question that they would like to ask. How much time is left for them to complete the exit slip is also crucial as to how you will construct it. Here are some other examples:
      1. students are asked to draw a picture of __________
      2. students complete on their own the L part of a K-W-L
      3. if they have learned about an historical characters: write a "memo" telling this person what you feel his/her most important accomplishment was
      4. if lesson has an essential question, students can write the answer
      5. if it's math, have students work 2-3 problems
      6. students write a question concerning what was taught in the lesson; this question will be given to another student the next day to answer
      7. students write a "rhyme" concerning the material learned
      (George Washington was the president; in the White House he was a resident.)
      8. students write 5-10 words that they feel were important in the lesson (revolution, surrender, Yorktown, independence, etc.);
      next day some students could be called on to explain a word they wrote

      Exit slips can be anything the teacher can think of that helps her to see what the students gained from the lesson.

        If I had time I would have them answer on a Post It and then add it to our "Facebook Timeline" or "Twitter Hashtags", which were bulletin boards I kept up all year long. If we didn't have time they would just write their answer on a whiteboard and I would dismiss them as they held them up for me to see.

          Simply give students a response sheet titled "What I have learned." Depending on writing ability students can write or draw a model of what they learned from a lesson.
