I use Fridays as our assessment days. They get an agenda that morning for all that they are required to do before the end of the day. I go over it with them. They can work at their own pace and in any order they choose. Some things are individual and some are partner/group if they want. I walk around helping and talking with them. They can do the assignments on paper or computer. I created a gmail for our class so we use google documents on google drive. They have must dos and then can choose from a list of things if they finish.
Lots of discussion, collaboration, thinking, planning going on!
This is my favorite day of the week! Lol!
One student today said he wished he could do this ALL the time! 🙂
