  • Two Thumbs Way, Way Up

    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.
