Teaching tip of the week: Studies have shown that students learn better when they have goals. Set goals for your classes, and list them in your syllabus and announce them in the first class. Goals include more than knowledge goals. They can be cognitive miniskills, such as the ability to distinguish cases, or practical skills, such as the writing complaints.
