This tool helps students and the teacher understand a student’s level of thinking and understanding of the assignment. With this, students can feel safe telling the teacher their understanding indirectly and without contact.
For this tool, you will need three bins where students can put their work in after lessons. One bin has to be red. In this bin, students will put their work in here if they need more help in understanding. Another bin has to be yellow. In this bin, students will put their work in there if they need help in understanding a bit more; “nearly sure.” Lastly, you need a green bin where students will put their work in if they completely understand the work. An important element for this tool is that students need to read targets posted on the board and see where their understanding stands in order for them to determine where they should put their work in.
This tool fits best in the Supportive Phase because it will let a teacher better assess the student. By letting the student choose where their understanding is at, on their own, the teacher is able to make adjustments to future lessons, bring back students for individual or small group work, and even being able to talk to the student directly about what they do understand and go from there. For my Theory of Influence, I thought that this tool fits best under Student Directed and Collaborative because students get to decide how well they understood the work and the teacher is able to do further adjustments based on the students' decision.
