Art Exit Tickets
Are you looking for a quick and easy formative assessment tool to check for understanding? Have a scheduled observation and need a way to polish off the end of your art lesson? Check out this comprehensive pack of 100 unique art exit tickets. Each is aligned to the Studio Habits of Mind framework. These writing prompts will be an effective tool in your art room no matter where you are on the choice spectrum.
Exit Slips: Teacher Directions
There are a few different ways to use these exit slips, whether it be at the end of a lesson or a unit of study. For example, you could pre-select a slip and give everyone the same prompt to complete during the last few minutes of class. So, if you’re teaching about the history of Ancient Greek pottery, you might consider selecting the prompt that reads, “How do we learn from the past by looking at ancient art?” from the Understand Art Worlds SHOM standard.
Or maybe you’ve just completed a printmaking unit and you want your students to demonstrate they understood the process. You might want to use the prompt that reads, “How did you create your art?” from the Develop Craft SHOM standard.
You could also use an exit ticket as a quick art critique or a way to survey student’s perspectives on the art or artist. Prompts like “One reason this is a strong piece is…” are an excellent way to evoke strong opinions about works of art and the artists who create them. It’s a great way to get students to think critically!
However, if you’re a fully choice-based art teacher, your approach might be different. You could print out all 100 writing prompts, put them in labeled folders according to the 8 standards, and instruct students to select one from a certain folder. So if on that day your class is focusing on SHOM Reflection, each student grabs an art exit ticket in that folder. And with the number of prompts given, it’s likely you’ll wind up with all types of authentic reflection pieces.
Art exit slips are a great way to gauge student learning concepts and assess standards. Each prompt comes 4 to a page. Simply print and go!
