Jigsaw 103: Making the Grade

 

Pane 3 – Survey

Pane 4 – Whiteboard

In this lesson I chose to use surveys in Pane 3 and a whiteboard in Pane 4.

I love the use of surveys as a warm up or exit ticket to assess student learning.  In this survey I ask the students two simple questions to assess their understanding of ellipses:  What is an ellipse and what does (h,k) represent in an ellipse.  This quick assessment allows me to decide what I need to emphasize in the session.

I like the whiteboard to increase student engagement.  In this session, after teaching the lesson using Pane 2 I would then allow the students to create equations using the properties that I have given them in Pane 4.  I would give privileges to particular students to enable them to write their answer on the whiteboard.

The use of Panes 3 and 4 really help to increase student interaction and engagement in the lesson.  It allows me as the teacher to really get a hands-on view of what my students are learning.
