Slate Show Call

Mar 14, 2016 | by Janice Smith

At Henderson Collegiate they use something called ‘Slates’ in many of their classes.  This is a great way to:

1) Provide students with a lot of ‘at-bats’,

2) Give the teacher immediate data on student mastery as well as misconceptions, and

3) A chance to give students immediate feedback, with an opportunity to try again right afterwards.

In this clip we see an example of how he uses ‘show call’ of student work to both reinforce habits he wants to see, as well as provide an opportunity to address misconceptions he saw in other student work while circulating. Check out another clip titled ‘Slate Practice’ to see more of how Mr. Shigenobu uses this in his 8th grade science class.
