Exit or entry tickets can be one of the most effective strategies for deepening learning and informing teaching.

  • Helps teacher to focus lesson
  • Consolidates learning.  
  • Gives info about student thinking, accountability; misconceptions and gaps
  • For example, give students 5 minutes to do any activities we did today
    • How are y=3x+2 and y = 2x+3 alike? Different?
    • Mauricio added 4.75 and 5.6, she got 5.31.  David got 10.35? Which of the two friends answers make sense?  Explain fully. Where did the other friend go wrong?
    • Simplify 3-4(x-2)

Key is how you use the results the next day.
