Closing Activities?

I am a student teacher who is teaching Math 3 and Integrated Algebra. My college requires that we have an anticipatory set (opening) and a closure, I have an anticipatory set but the closure has been a problem for me. I do a question of the day for my anticipatory set and I do not want to over do it by giving them a ticket out/exit slip. I was wondering if anyone had an ideas.

what specific topic are you covering?

You closure should basically address whether your students "got" your content objective

I agree with the previous post. At the end of your class period do some sort of progress monitoring. Instead of doing a warm up problem at the beginning of class do a cool down problem at the end of class.

Have the students write a note to an absent student to explain how to do the math they learned in the lesson

How about "Process" notes to summarize the process involved in the new procedure? Mine are normally in the middle of the class, but they would serve as a nice closer instead.

HAve one example on the board, and ask how they know the problem type. Write what they say next to the title, paraphrasing if necessary.

Then ask how they got from the first step to the second, and write that down, and so on down the list.

They'll leave with a nice overview, in their own words. It makes studying SO MUCH easier!
