I choose essential standards for my English course and put them on a "bingo" card. Then I met with students and we chose the standards that they would work on for the next few weeks. We also worked together to create assignments that went along with those standards. When students turned in work, we marked on the "bingo" card if they had mastered the skill. If so, I wrote the name of the assignment in the box. Once they showed mastery three times, we choose another standard. I was worried that students would choose standards that were "easy" for them, but was pleasantly surprised that most students choose standards they really needed to improve on. Throughout the term, we tried to hit all of the standards on the bingo card.
