At school it’s a time went the teacher or group leader ties together any loose ends in a project or task. The 2-3 minutes spent as the activity nears its end might be a brief review, a quick evaluation or the sharing of outcomes. It lets the students know that their time working had value and signals that the adult takes note of that value.
December is also a form of closure. The calendar year is ending, signaling a time to look back and forward at the same time. Whether we made/make formal resolutions or just think about where we are and what we’ve accomplished over the last twelve months, it’s worthwhile to seek closure.
Whichever closure you might use, enjoy your process.
