Here is a (by no means exhaustive) list of the main things I like to consider before seeing any students. 

  • Classroom Environment
    • Walls
    • Seating Chart
    • Supplies
    • Organization
  • Curriculum
    • Inspiration
    • Instruction
    • Practice
    • Assessment
    • Feedback
  • Lessons
    • Gifted Students
    • Support
  • Provisions
    • IEP/504’s
  • Remediation
    • Prerequisites
  • Communication
  • Support
    • Videos
    • Websites
    • Office Hours
    • Practice Questions
  • Feedback
  • Use of IT
    • Introduction of the above
  • Advising (Homeroom/Form Group)
    • Schedule
    • Extra Activities
  • Extra-Curricular Club
    • Initial Schedule
    • Student Leaders

What do you like to think about before lessons begin? Can you think of any holes in my basic considerations?
