The Day Ends
Just as you can help students greet a new day with eagerness and mindful purpose, so can you close the day with a similar spirit of purpose and celebration—your students will leave the classroom feeling calm yet energized. Eric Jensen, whose "brain-based" teaching has transformed teaching and learning in countless classrooms, explains, “Asking kids to visualize success on an upcoming skill or knowledge set is no ‘new Age’ strategy. When done well, mental practice is known not only to make physical changes in the brain but also to improve task performance (Pascual-Leone et al., 2005)” (2010). For example, a spirited and energetic cleanup of the room to some upbeat music can be followed by a regrouping for recapping the day's accomplishments, and a brief shared Core Practice before dismissal. The goal is to end the day on a high note!
