I still remember this being a really emotional last class. Even though everything was over Zoom, I felt so connected with my students. I also felt like I poured my soul into this course. Memory really touches every facet of our lives and it’s difficult to try to wrap everything that this course is and means into a 5-minute conclusion. In my mind, the best way to spend this last class together is to share our projects and to reflect on what we’ve learned.
Goal: to share final projects and conclude our class together.
- Think about the format through which you want students to share their projects – in front of small groups or the whole class, how will classmates engage with presentations?
- Consider writing students individual notes thanking them for their contributions to the class community and praising their achievement + growth over the course.
- Think about how you want to conclude the course? What do you want students to remember from this experience?
Your comments and suggestions are always welcome, as are your experiences – what did teaching this course mean to you? What did your last day feel like?
You’ve made it to the end. Please email me if you taught through this class, I want to hear from you: email@example.com.
