Use formative questions that help you determine whether students are getting it or not. Here are a few ideas:

  • Which ThroughLines are we studying in this unit?
  • What have you learned about the ThroughLines in this unit?
  • When you’re doing ______ (learning activity or skill), which ThroughLine do you think you are developing and practicing?
  • How have you practiced living the ThroughLines? What is the most valuable things that you have learned?
  • Do you ever think about the ThroughLines when you are not at school? Which ThroughLine have you used or thought about when not at school?

Do you have a good formative question to gauge comprehension? Share in the comments below.
