On a quiz in late February. The blanked out parts were my writing and the student’s writing (in pen, while viewing my solutions to the quiz immediately after taking it).
In the comments—
- What was the student thinking? How did he or she decide to make these particular marks on the paper?
- What question or problem would you pose next to help the student make the next step toward understanding?
P.S. I’m looking for more authors for this blog. If you would like to share student work here, please email me at physicsmistakes at gmail dot com so that I can get you set up as one of the blog authors.
Keep calm and mistake on!
