Experience as a professor
Experience as a student
Aim at nothing and you'll hit it every time
Take appropriate corrective action
Revise your goal downward only as a last resort
Never study before the sun goes down
Never study after the sun goes down
Get up and get going
Make every minute count
How many of you cut class today? This week?
Correlation between grades and attendance
Why students cut class
Complete assignments as they are given
As soon as they are given
Schedule project milestones
Leave some slack at the end
Treat them like humans
One office visit per course per semester
Participate in class, be enthusiastic
Figure them out
What are the course objectives?
What will it take to make an A?
