I Love this idea! I'm curious about the daily exit ticket. If students are working at their own pace then what do you use to Check for understanding throughout the lesson and at the conclusion of the work time. Also, how is this information tracked and are students aware of how to use this feedback to make their work better the next day.
Erik, I would love to connect with you! Our school is an EL Education partner school and we love using the Models of Excellence as our guide. I also think attaching an student writing example of how this rubric helped a student progress through each revision is a powerful tool for students. I've had students use different color pens through each draft so we can a visual progress bar for their work.
