So, check out this great (free) resource for leaders and teachers. My colleague, a retired High School Principal and District Administrator, watched “Your Shining Moment” and noted,
This is a great example of students being an owner of their own learning. Here’s this teacher who allows students to reflect and determine what they have done well that day, an opportunity to recognize what they have accomplished. Also, when a student has struggled with something and finally gets it, this gives the student a chance to report “I got it!” and recognize that accomplishment. Thus, a great example of student ownership via self-assessment (formative assessment) for improvement.
