Day 8: Unit 1, Chapter 1 Assessment

I ran out of plan time before this class, but it went ok anyway. Next time I should remember to administer this assessment during one of our shorter periods, not on a block day.

I began by allowing learners access to the assessment and they completed the assessment individually. After about 20 minutes, everyone was finished. Then I randomly assigned partners and allowed each pair to debate the correct solution to each question and change their answers as appropriate.

The discussions that followed were incredibly productive. I was giddy listening to them construct viable arguments and respectfully critiques each other’s reasoning.
