At the conclusion of a lesson, adult education instructor Duane Lambert asks learners to identify something they learned, the questions they have, and the concepts that connect with something they already know.
These resources are part of KET's Teaching Strategies collection.
At the conclusion of a lesson, it is helpful to have students reflect on the topic and consider how, or if, it relates to prior knowledge. Having an activity or a short questionnaire to complete at the end of every class will help them with this process. You may tailor the closure activity to fit your situation and your learners, but some helpful questions to ask are:
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
