I've been thinking about checklists, and as it is the end of the week, I don't have enough energy to do real work. So here is a checklist that I developed for use inside of the classroom. The PDF version is here. The Microsoft Publisher 2010 version is here.
I followed the checklist making checklist from The Checklist Manifesto. The last part of the checklist is to validate the list that I just wrote. I'll be testing it in my classes next week.
The main focus of the checklist is communicating with the students about the details of the course. I find that I like to charge ahead with the course material, and I forget about reviewing and giving the feedback that the students need. Another teacher may need a different set of checks.
This is designed for a face-to-face classes. I do not teach on-line, so I wouldn't be able to develop a checklist for on-line classes. We are working on developing computer mediated sections of our developmental classes, so I will be making one for those classes soon.
