Day 58: Student Generated Study Guide
Prior to taking a quiz, I had my student groups generate a list of topics they thought were going to be on the quiz. I gave them 5 minutes to generate a list on the big white boards.
Then they passed them counter clockwise to the next group. Each group read over the list, then added to it anything that was missing in their opinion. We passed them again, and again, and again until the whiteboard arrived back at the original group. Then we placed them on the side counters for all to see.
It was interesting to hear students say, “Oh! we forgot SOH-CAH-TOA” or “They forgot the special right triangles” or “I wonder what they meant by DMS” or “We learned what a radian is #sick” I believe the act of creating their own list followed by looking at other lists and clarifying what was meant, help solidify their understanding of the plethora of topics. How do you review with students?
