Framing the lesson with a lesson closure is a powerful best practice of the Fundamental 5.
“When implemented correctly – every lesson, every day – this fundamental practice boosts student engagement, enhances student cognition (rigor), builds and strengthens connections to content (relevance), increases student retention, and facilitates improved content pacing.”
Cain, S., Laird, M., Cotten, S., & Ellspermann, J. (2021). In The fundamental 5 revisited: Exceptional instruction in every setting (p. 18), Independently published.
Framing the lesson consists of 2 parts, an Objective and a Close. The objective and close are posted and verbalized statements that are direct and to the point. The Objective tells the students what they will learn today in class and should be written in student friendly, concrete, and personal language. The close tells the student what they will have to do at the end of class to demonstrate that they achieved the objective.
