1. Use the class syllabus to understand what responsibilities I have as a student, as well as what the teacher is expecting from me. I will also be able to see what type of support the teacher will give throughout the course.
2. Choose specific materials from the supply list and be able to select items that are the most important to having a positive experience with my class.
Before we get started, make sure you have a goals sheet and have written down the two goals that we will be working on today. Technically, it’s like an agenda, however when taking as many steps as we do throughout our class it is a good idea to make sure that your on track with what the goal was for any given discussion or project.
Make sure you keep these with you in your binder to refer to when working on projects throughout the semester.
