Reflection: Real World Applications How Much Will They Get? - Section 5: Closure

After the students have learned the skill, I like to check for understanding using a task.  With the task, the students get their independent work time to solve.  It is important because some students will not have anything to contribute to the conversation if they have not worked on the problem.  With group activities, it gives those few students who do not want to do any work a chance to hide behind others.  As teachers, it is our job to monitor group activities to make sure that all students are contributing to the conversation.  With a task, the teacher is the facilitator, therefore, it is designed for us listen in on the students' conversation.  We should interject as necessary to ask questions of the students that will lead them to a deeper understanding of the skill.
