Could not find a way to contact you via email, but I have a question: What exactly is a “one sheet?” Do I understand correctly that you had your students create 24 pages of concept descriptions in one day? That can’t be right. . .can it? I love the idea of having students summarize what they know and re-learn what they don’t, so I’d love to hear more about how to use this activity.
Hi Sue! So I use one-pages for different things. After each chapter I will have students create a one-sheet to receive for the test. Students can write vocab, sample problems, diagrams, or anything they like on that one sheet. This helps them go through the content to review. For my algebra 1 kahoot midterm, I said I had my students create one-sheets. These one-sheets were a little different. Students went through the content and provided notes and sample problems (whatever they thought they needed) This had them review every chapter and write down the information they thought they needed. My algebra 1 one-sheets included more practice problems then vocab. and notes
