all things 303
In all things 303 we are learning about three effective and powerful tools. They are: active listening; facilitating; and wrapping up a session. One good way of wrapping up a session would be to have a silence and wait time where the tutor and the student take a moment to reflect on what has taken place so far in the session. Then you could easily go into a question like: "do you have any questions before we close?" that way signaling the end of the session without putting the student into a tense situation. I have not tried this personally but I have seen it done and it looks like it works.
