The wrap-up: Ideas for the last day of class
When I was younger I recall having many good intentions about using the last day of class to reflect on and integrate what had happened during the semester. Students would think about and share their Meaningful Learning Experiences, there would be significant bonding, perhaps a few tears shed, and we would all leave on a high note – in my imagination. In reality, I often use that day to catch up, students are exhausted and cranky, and they’re glad when I let them go early.
This semester I’ve scheduled an entire class session for nothing but integration exercises. I’ve been collecting ideas from experts about wrapping up a class and thought I’d share them with you. I’m excited about trying some of these – but, honestly, I’ll probably let students out a little early, too.
