Almost two weeks ago I wrote about "hooks" also known as anticipatory sets or sometimes called warm-ups. The first few minutes of a lesson are critical for establishing student interest and engagement.
But what about closures?!?
Math By the Mountain has developed several posts about the significance of using exit tickets in secondary math classes.
@LeeanneBranham mentioned the suggestion to start the next lesson with a closure to the previous one and she shared a 3-2-1 that worked for her.
Beginnings and endings are significant - and possibly the moments we plan for the least.@BridgetDunbar @fractionfanatic @algebrasfriend @druinok I have had great success with this. pic.twitter.com/929nZPrP7m— LeeanneBranham (@LeeanneBranham) August 9, 2016
What ideas do you have to share? How do you reserve 5 to 10 minutes for closure consistently?
