Entrance Tickets to Drive Learning Plans
Students take an entrance ticket when they enter the class, grade it together, and each student then determines what type of learning they need to do that day - seminar for small-group instruction with the teacher or workshop for individual or partner work in applying the skill. Students are empowered to declare what they do and do not know and readily advocate for their needs, whether that includes enrichment or additional instruction.
