I chose to make the groups for today's summative. They had 30 minutes to work in groups and brainstorm questions relating to pictures shown. They also had to categorize their questions by curriculum expectation. Then we shared. I put the questions from each group under the document camera and we quickly discussed which questions were good and which might not fit the curriculum. The class did a really good job of coming up with questions that related to the pictures and fit with the curriculum.
Next came the individual work. They were given the same pictures with a limited amount of new information to work with and had to answer the questions they had come up with in groups. Many students found this part frustrating as, in some cases, they felt they weren't given enough information. They will work on it more tomorrow.
