Strategy: A strategy is a plan of action designed to achieve how you are going to accomplish or achieve a goal or task. A strategy is designed to enhance the skill acquisition. For example: A graphic organizer from Thoughtful Education is a strategy.

How are teachers using these exit slips/bell ringers to drive instruction?
Is everyone using bell ringers and giving grades? ( We found teachers gave a grade everyday after they went over them in class for 1 point and another teacher waited until the end of the week to have students turn them in for a grade after they went over answers every day. Problems? Assessing Learning after answers given (of student or teachers knowledge?)
