Wishing for engaging test prep activities?

March 28th, 2010 · No Comments · Assignments, Curriculum, LCCs, Tech Classrooms, Test prep, WOW

It’s the greatest time of the year for us in Louisiana, It’s test prep season.  Whoo Hoooooo.  Yes, I know that technologically alllll year is test prep season, but those few weeks right before testing are the most intense.  I constantly look for ways to use Web 2.0 tools and technology to help my students.   We have used Wallwisher in my class several times and the kids seem to like it.  Here is a page that we used to respond about our Hurricane Katrina memories.

My latest attempt at Wallwishing requires that the students post a sticky note with a definition, synonym, example or picture that illustrates the math concept.  Yes, I did say math concept.  This English teacher is teaching the concepts behind math verbs.  Across the curriculum is the only way to live. =D

Their assignment was to choose at least 3 concept walls to respond to.

 

The walls and concepts are as follows:

Label

Solve / Calculate

Simplify

Model

Show Work

Predict

Identify / Find

Graph

Classify

Evaluate

Justify and Explain

Anyone else have any other test prep activities to share?
