New teaching idea: exit tickets

Twitter is awesome isn’t it. As a new teacher, I’m learning a massive amount from exchanges of tweets. For example:


This exchange convinced me to use exit tickets every class, which is my new teaching idea for this fortnight. I’ve chosen it partly based on another twitter conversation, this time with @matt___Thompson who suggested that the new teaching ideas should come from Doug Lemov’s Teach Like a Champion. Sounds good to me!

So, get involved! Try an exit ticket or three. Or, if you’re like Joe or Kris, try them for every class. I’m planning that for the next two weeks. Tweet their impact to @weeklymaths using the hashtag #nti. Then come back here and let us know what impact it has made on student progression by commenting on this post.

And, if you want to read comments on the impact of breaking everything down for students, which was new teaching idea no. 1, take a look at the post here. Please do add your comments too!
