FINAL THOUGHTS FROM STUDENTS AND THE PROFESSOR

"Final Thoughts": Have students write down three things they think they'll remember most about the class in the future (and they can be anything). And have students write down two things they know but didn't know before taking the class (i.e., something they learned). For example, from a learning course, have them consider if they look at behavior or learning any differently now that you’ve taken the course?  If so, how?  Then have the professor present her/his own "Final Thoughts," which can be a lighthearted reflection on lectures, activities, trips, etc.. After the professor has presented, have the students share some of what they wrote.
