Closing the Deal

We all seek closure in important aspects of our lives—why not algebra? Student learning will benefit if you take a few minutes at the end of each algebra lesson to close the deal. Do students understand the purpose of the lesson? Do they have a sense of how it will lead to the next lesson? Have you given them constructive feedback? This week’s FREE tool is a table that will help you address these questions with examples of how to provide closure and feedback in algebra for students K–5. The tool comes from CEC’s “Bridging the Gap Between Arithmetic & Algebra,” a collection of essays designed to help teachers prepare students with disabilities for the challenges of our STEM-oriented future. CEC’s Tool of the Week is a free resource designed to support you in your special education practice. Subscribe and it’ll be automatically delivered to your inbox!  Get your Tool of the Week.
