Adult education instructors Pat Marshall and Elizabeth Dinkins review the day’s lesson using a series of closure activities.
These resources are part of KET’s Teaching Strategies collection.
At the conclusion of a lesson, it is helpful to have learners 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. Framing the concepts in a series of “I can” statements can give learners a sense of accomplishment. Help them to process their learning by asking questions such as:
Information gained from closure activities can be used to design subsequent lessons and to tailor teaching strategies that directly meet the needs of learners.
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.
