This example is used at the end of the lesson to emphasize what was just learned and to see if the students understand the lesson that was just taught. This strategy is more for the students to talk. The teacher shouldn't wrap up the lesson by talking and explaining what was just taught. This gives the students a sense of involvement. E.
