Takeaway from this session many quick and easy closure strategies for your lessons. Lectures or class meetings that just end do not leave lasting impressions as well as classes with closure. Closure or the wrap up of a lesson helps students recognize, summarize, acknowledge, synthesize what they just learned. As education reformer, John Dewey is credited for stating, “We do not learn from an experience. We learn from reflecting on an experience.” Closure strategies for a lesson are just that. Students have had an experience, and then reflect on that experience. Learn how to easily incorporate closure to your existing lessons to help students organize what they have learned in a meaningful way.
