Mid-week Communication

Many of you are teaching on a weekly cycle. Midweek communications (usually email) is a terrific way to promote continuity and especially to get people prepared for the next lesson.

I usually keep it short and include:
  • any key reminders of the past week
  • additional observations or follow-ups
  • preview of next week, and suggested "read this in advance" or a question to pique their curiosity

This isn't difficult to do. Here's an excellent example you could follow.

It's on my list this year to get better at this. I used to do it consistently but got "out of the habit."
