I get ready for a new term by reviewing the material required for the class, the syllabus, and the students’ names. I write up at least 4 or more weeks of plans and assignments. as well as make sure that my roll book is in order. With all those things done, I am ready to greet my students and begin teaching them. The main thing is to be prepared so as to spend the most instructional time with them, not on having to prepare materials on their time.
