Ticket out the Door is a simple strategy to allow a teacher to quickly check for student understanding of a lesson or a particular concept. It can also be used for students to ask a teacher any question that they may still have prior to leaving for their next class. Once kids are taught the purpose of the strategy and know that they must present the ticket to “get out the door”, it can help motivate them to attend better to the lesson and ask for clarification when needed. This strategy is adapted from Janet N. Zadina’s ‘Ticket out the Door’ in “Six Weeks to a Brain-Compatible Classroom.”
I am a Learning Support teacher and I am looking for some ideas to share with a Regular Education Science teacher to check if our shared students with disabilities are grasping the key concepts in his class. Sometimes when I review with them they have no idea of what was discussed!
