Two Thumbs Way, Way Up

John Quinn, Brian Kavanagh, Norma Boakes, and Ronald Caro 

December 2008, Volume 15, Issue 5, Page 295

A team of authors, including a fourth-grade teacher and his professor from a local graduate school, describe culminating and assessing elementary lessons with an index card recap and peer review. In an urban district that traditionally struggles with standardized testing, this activity prompts students to summarize and communicate the day's lesson and key ideas in a format that is easy to implement and continue, and that helps assess student learning.
