We have four basic questions we ask on my campus. Loosely stated, they are: What do we want the students to know? How do we know when they know it? What do we do with those who already know it? What do we do for students struggling to know it? I seem to struggle the most with “What do we do when they already know it?”
So, what do you do? How do you use Formative to advance students who need it- already had the material, gifted and talented, etc.? (Without them feeling like they are just getting more work.)
As we are currently reading Romeo & Juliet, I notice every year that many students come to me having already read the play. With that in mind, I have been working on an extension activity that would help assess their actual knowledge of the work as well as use their critical and creative thinking skills and writing skills. It is still a work in progress, but I have shared it in hopes of giving others a possible idea as well as getting feedback on how you think I could improve upon it. This is for 9th graders.
