S.O.S Summary

 An S.O.S. Summary is an assessment that can be used at any point in a lesson.  Present a statement (S), and then ask the students' opinions (O) about that statement.  After students have either agreed or disagreed with the statement, ask them to support (S) his or her opinion with evidence.  This summary can be used before or during a unit, and it is a great way to assess students' attitudes, prior knowledge, and even misconceptions about a topic.
