Ms. Segura use paricipation quiz as a tracker in her classroom.  She reminded to students to use their words and to do more talking in their groups.  She kept track of what was going on each group and point out what they needed to work on.  For the most part, students were working and trying their best to meet expectations.  This is a good tracker that I can use in my classroom to keep up with parcipation and to get the students to focus on the task.

  1. How does Ms. Segura use the participation quiz in her math class?
    She uses it to focus students, and to also check in on basic principles introduced in the class.
  2. Why is the participation quiz especially useful for English Language Learners?
    It reinforces content through repetition and also has students assisting each other.
  3. How could you use the participation quiz in your own classroom?
    Some content in theatre tech would apply well to this.  There are small building blocks that need to be understood and processed that then allow a student to learn more complex concepts.

I think that the participation quiz looks like a great tool to use in the classroom. I noticed from the title that these are ELLs students. I think this is a great type of assessment for English learners. I remember being shyer when I was younger because I couldn't speak English properly; having this type of assessment, will allow the students to try and participate when they probably wouldn't have. It also gives the teacher the opportunity to observe and see where the students are still having difficulty.

1. Focusing the group work activity, and redirecting the students. Also capturing any academic language they are using in their conversations. 

2. Application and reinforcement through a group

3. Concentrating the group work activity with the specific goals for the lesson.

    Patricia Segura: And you can use it in multiple ways depending on what you’re looking for. I use it primarily to focus the group work activity. And it-- redirecting students and to capture any academic language that they’re utilizing as support, as a scaffold for other students to be able to see what they’re saying. And use it within their conversation.

    Patricia Segura: Any time that you have a routine in the classroom, it gives students stability, and they know what is happening. Especially with kids who are coming with a lot of trauma. It’s something that grounds them, “I know what’s going to happen, and this is what I need to be doing.” So, it’s just a guide for them to feel comfortable in the classroom, and also have high expectations.
    Student:

    Patricia Segura: They really appreciate the constant feedback or the present time feedback. And often times they will capture things, and say, “Hey, they said this. Can you write it down so I can say it again?” So even they are checking in with each other, and listening to what the conversations, that are happening in the classroom. You guys did really good working together in groups from my observations. I would like to hear more talking from everyone. Maybe two people were doing a lot of the talking,
