Joanie is a 12th grade English teacher at Glenbrook South High School outside of Chicago. Her school serves an upper-middle class suburban population and her students are very focused on their studies. As a result, they are also very concerned about individual assignment grades. After three weeks spent reading Shakespeare’s The Tempest, Joanie prepares an exam that will assess students’ understanding of the major themes and literary devices used by Shakespeare throughout the test. She spends a weekend formulating 30 multiple choice questions and four short answer questions that she feels reflect the major focus points of the unit. On Monday, she reviews the information with her students and on Tuesday she gives the exam. Curious to see how her students did, she grades them later in the day and is shocked to find that nearly half of her students failed. Looking more specifically at the questions her students missed, she soon discovers that most students were unable to answer questions related to Shakespeare’s biographical history and that many also misunderstood major parts of the plot. Discouraged, she decides she needs to come up with a plan for how to revisit the information and retest her students.
Suggest a three step plan that Joanie can use to identify the specific information students had trouble with, revisit those topics in class, and retest the information. How can she use the students that performed well on the test to help those who struggled? How can she stop students from being discouraged when they see a failing grade?
