## Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Exploring Quadratic Functions - Section 3: Closing

Exit Cards are extremely valuable to me for assessing my students’ progress quickly, so I attempt to end every lesson with some form of an Exit Card. Today’s Exit Card is verbal instead of written, but it serves the same purpose.

Not only does it give me a quick glimpse to capture where my students are or where they might be having difficulties, but it also allows us to feel a sense of closure as an entire class. Additionally, I appreciate having my students go back and evaluate what they learned in a class by examining their ability to apply it in an immediate context.
