I am taking a grad school course and in order to be able to walk out the
door when class is over, we have to hand in our "Ticket to leave." This is
an open ended simple form with 3 main statements to complete:
Today I discovered that...
Today I learned...
I am still unclear about...

You could certainly substitute other open ended statements, but the idea is
to allow the students to reflect and write about what is uppermost in their
minds. I tried this today in a portfolio review with my seventh graders and
I got some very interesting statements such as" I discovered that I can draw
better than I realized I could"; "I discovered that my art work looks as
good as anybody else's", " I learned that there are many different
techniques to use when painting" etc. Too many to mention, but I was
pleased that the students really seemed to think about the questions. The
form gave me a much better idea of their artisitc growth during the term
than a numerical rating would have. I completed the form by writing comments
for each student. The form then goes back in the portfolio when they bring
it home. I like Ellen's writing assignment and would eventually like to try
that too. Good luck!
