How to use this strategy: |
Give students several post-it notes at the conclusion of a lesson or activity that you would like evaluated. Ask students to comment, on post-it notes, the pluses of the activity (what went well) and the deltas of the activity (what they would like to change). Next, students place the post-its on the chart. The class has a discussion about the comments. |
