Check For Understanding – Brain Dump

The Situation

You need to assess what your students know about a particular topic.

The Solution

Complete a brain dump prior to starting a new subject/course. Provide students with the following printable. Have students number off 1-4 at their table. They the need to assign themselves a quadrant on the page. Record the topic in the middle next to “Brain Dump”. From their students need to record what they know about the topic before sharing back to the class. As a follow up activity, you can have students complete a similar activity though focusing on what they have learnt.
