Thank you so much for your virtual learning session. I really enjoyed your explanation of how you implemented Blind Formatives. I loved your ideas of how you captured their interest by using the “Simon the Cat” video and how you developed questions #6 allowing them to express their own independent feedback. I really think it will help me adjust on the whole learning process and how I can improve learning experience. Your Blind Formative will give me another way to assess struggling student understanding and give me a snap shot of depth of understanding.
This made me rethink how I would like to introduce a particular historical event, period of time or individual. I had to re-watch your video, but your ideas made me excited. Now I want do a blind formative on Ben Franklin or John Adams (Adams is a really hard sell to my students). I do a short activity using the Hamilton Broadway play and do an Edpuzzle to draw connection to the American Revolution. Your Blind Formative gave me the idea to retool the activity and make it more of a Blind Formative on Hamilton. Again thank you and I hope you don’t mind, but I am planning to pass on your Google presentation to my English writing and reading teachers. I saved your video and will show it to our team PD meeting. Thanks again for this awesome tutorial.
