During Class

Remind students to

After Class

How you treat your colleagues and how you share resources can impact your professional reputation, for good or bad. The Golden Rule usually applies: consider how you want a classroom to look and feel when you arrive, and leave a classroom in that state.

I know of no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but with the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take power from them, but to inform their discretion through instruction. -Thomas Jefferson (more quotes)
