Day 97: Technical Writing Practice
I’m sure you’ve never experienced this: things seemed to be going well until you assess, and then you find out you were in dream land! That happened to me after the last mini-quiz I gave my AP statistics students on confidence intervals. Although I gave them the sentence stems in their notes followed by whole class writing practice as well as individual practice, the assessment showed that they really didn’t know what they were talking about…no real surprise!
So I spent last night putting together a card sort on confidence interval statements around the Pink Sweetheart conversation heart activity. I created 16 statements, some written correctly but using different wording, some incorrect, some based on the statements the kids wrote on their assessments. They first had to read through the statements as a group. Then they sorted into correct and incorrect statments. Thats as far as we got today. More tomorrow…..
