The Care and Feeding of Freshmen

A work in progress, and probably applicable to students of all ages:
  • Repetition, repetition, repetition.
  • Collect everything before they leave the room (or you will never see it again) and at least pretend to grade it.
  • Repetition, repetition, repetition.
  • Practice and model routines/procedures.
  • Occasionally give completely unqualified praise without bringing up areas for improvement.
  • Whenever a child does something right, make them believe that it was completely their idea even if it was yours.
  • Repetition, repetition, repetition.

    Substitute “Husband” for “Freshman” and just about everything still applies. Ha.
