Reflection: Checks for Understanding What Makes Ten? - Section 5: Closure


The closure is what brings the experience together for the kids. It allows them to examine their own learning and focus on what still needs to be learned. It also provides you evidence of learning through a quick check. You quickly learn who grasped the concept being taught and who is still shying away from it. Obviously I am not worried about the kids who responded to the questions I asked as their answers were progressively deeper with each subsequent student response. I keep note of this information on an observation form and I look for evidence in future lessons that the other students are starting to understand what is being asked of them.
