Transcript of Making a Lasting Impression- The "CLOSURE"

The defining element of the closure activity is that which your students will soon come to realize: class isn’t over until it has taken place.

Making a Lasting Impression-Winning with The "CLOSURE"
In the past, we've believed the Direct Instruction component of a lesson to be the most important part of a lesson. While it is important, it's vital that we know that the CLOSURE of our lesson is just as important

Reinforcing what students have learned, closure activities also serve as an assessment tool with which to evaluate your students retention level—Did they get it?—as well as your own effectiveness.
The closure allows you to see where the students are to assist you in planning for the next lesson.
How do you know if your students got it?
What's one thing you learned today?
How does today's lesson impact your understanding?
How would you summarize today's lesson for someone who wasn't here?
What was the most significant learning from today?
What "a-ha" did you have today?
What was the most difficult concept in today’s lesson?
On a scale of 1-5—using your fingers—rate today's lesson. To eliminate peer pressure, have everyone close their eyes.
Gauge your students using a quick formative assessment.
