I teach 6th grade math at Gallistel elementary school in Chicago (CPS). When teaching a new concept, it is difficult to quickly assess who understands and who does not. Students who are most in need are often also the most hesitant to ask questions. I currently rely on homework and exams to form this assessment. However, this does not provide immediate feedback and there is always the potential problem that the homework does not represent the student's own work. If each student had a dry erase board, I could ask students to work a short problem, write their solution on the dry erase board, and immediately hold it up for me to see. I would have immediate feedback with the certainty of knowing it was the student's own work. I could easily and quickly see if one or two students were having problems "getting it", or if the lack of understanding was more widespread. Thank you for considering my request.
