How I Use ‘Check For Understanding’ Questions In My Teaching

http://www.teachthought.com/pedagogy/assessment/how-i-use-check-for-understanding-questions-in-my-teaching/?utm_campaign=trueAnthem&utm_content=56ac00c304d30150f12bd7f4&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook 

The real key in using Checks For Understanding activities is making sure students have fluently mastered a prior skill before moving on. Think of learning as a foundation. If the foundation is not solid, the whole building will collapse. CFU questions are your lessons’ building inspector!
