  1. How can a plenary provide important reflection for both students and the teacher?

This was a really great tip for a teacher to go back at the end of a lesson and keep the students engaged as well as see where the students stand in understanding the lesson. I think allowing the students to work together and make a sentence that sums up the lesson really challenges them, but also makes them use their brains and go back over the things they learned during that lesson. Each task the teacher listed was a really great way to go back over a lesson and engage with the students.

Very interesting in how it was presented to encourage a student to get involved in the Learning Objective or even a share in the lesson plan. Nice strategies to help students to focus during the lesson and be reminded of how to follow up on what they have learned or need to improve upon.

As I watched this video with all its thoughtful ideas, I realized that one could use as a way for everyone to post ideas, feed off the ideas of others, etc. Simply project it as the students are typing their responses.

Still looking for quality kinder closure activities. This video offered a wide variety but they are mostly suited to older groups.
