Yes, the school year ends. Pretty soon, actually.

And while you’ve likely got “finish strong” plans for both your large group teaching and small group curricula, it might be worth considering an add-on (or maybe a replacement).

What if your last few weeks were spent doubling down on all that has been learned this year?

Consider the potential return: Would it be more valuable to help students remember, reconsider, and reflect on several important truths, in such a way that they’ll remember those things through the summer and beyond? Or is it better to share even more new content (even while they’re focused on Finals and the upcoming summer)?

The way I’m asking that question is certainly slanted, but I don’t really believe there’s one right answer. However, I do think it’s worth considering the value of review-remind-reinforce during this season (in large group, small groups, or both), even if you do that in addition to whatever you’ve already got planned.
