It is good pedagogy to have a closing for lessons especially in a blended classroom. There are several activities and groupings that I want to not only review what each group did, but also a preview for the next group so they will know what to expect. This is also a time to conduct exit tickets or other formative assessments to check for understanding.

Instructional Closings

Closing Bell

I use the Closing Bell strategy to bring my students back together as a community at the end of each class to check for understanding, debrief the class, give "grows and glows," and/or preview what we will be doing the following day. Building in this type of closing at the end of class is especially important in a blended classroom when students are spending so much time working independently or in groups.

Strategic Questioning
I use a lot of data to inform my instruction and target groups of all levels. One strategy I use in this targeting is Strategic Questioning - using various questioning techniques depending on the skill or scenario. I use Strategic Questioning to do formative assessment, develop a concept, and push students to explore the concept more deeply.
 
 
Mindsets
Aaron's Mindsets

A blended teacher’s personal mindsets shape his decisions as an educator. These mindsets influence general pedagogies, instructional approaches, and short-term decision making, alike. Check out how Aaron’s mindsets have helped to shape his blended instruction.

 
Routines and Procedures
Hand Signals

My colleagues and I use a variety of hand signals in our classroom to avoid unnecessary disruptions and maintain focus and time on task. Three common hand signals: a signal to use bathroom; a signal for needing scrap paper; and a signal for asking a presenter to speak louder. We introduce all of the hand signals to students at the beginning of the year in a community-wide Town Hall Meeting.
