What is Closure in a Lesson Plan? The closure is the time when you wrap up a lesson plan and help students organize the information in a meaningful context in their minds. This helps students better understand what they have learned and provides a way in which they can apply it to the world around them. A strong closure can help students better retain information beyond the immediate learning environment. A brief summary or overview is often appropriate; it doesn`t have to be an extensive review. A helpful activity when closing a lesson is to engage students in a quick discussion about what exactly they learned and what it means to them now.
Direct Instruction. This is the “meat” of your lesson plan. It’s where you present the new concept that is included in the lesson objectives. Prepare your students for success by pre-teaching key vocabulary words that are essential to understanding the concept or text you will introduce to them. When students know these key words in advance, they can focus more of their energy into learning the concept or understanding the text.
