That first day of each new year is almost blissful…until we begin the first lesson (which is always review); and then the ”not-so-heavenly” chorus begins. ”I’ve never seen that.” ”My teacher never taught us that.” ”I don’t know how to do fractions.” ”I don’t know my multiplication tables.” Giggle.
When a report says: ”Note: The fixture did not illuminate. The bulb may be burned out,” the buyer will wonder, ”Is it the bulb or is it the wiring?”The home inspector certainly doesn’t know, so he disclaims the switch, the wiring and the fixture. Now the report has created a question in the buyer’s mind rather than a answer.I always said my real job was turning questions about the building into facts. Facts can be managed. Questions generate more doubts.You, the homeowner, can very easily lower the chance of your buyer running for the hills in terror by doing the easy, simple stuff.
2. Ask them to demonstrate their learning / understanding. This is more effective in the lower classes and again helps build confidence while actually revising concepts and getting your child to think about applications.
If you really, REALLY, want to impress the home inspector, you can temporarily label any switches whose operation is not obvious. Such as switches for interior plugs, exterior lighting and accessories like pumps, ponds, attic fans and so forth.Anything you do to help the inspector get the job done easily and quickly will influence the final report. Make them smile and make them wonder, ”Does a home inspector live here?”
Every time a teacher gives a worksheet or assigns homework without the students having had time for correct practice in class, some students are going to makes mistakes which will likely get repeated.And as far as fixing those practiced mistakes…teachers usually don’t even realize it happened, but even if they do realize it, there simply is not sufficient time for the hundreds of repetitions needed to fix the mistake.
Students who are disconnected from the professor and from their fellow students are more likely to skip class, be disengaged when they are in class, and give lower evaluations at the end of class. They are less likely to learn and to contribute while in the classroom. Given this, it is worth spending 20” at the beginning of a new semester to have students up and moving about to begin to learn about their classmates and to also have the sense that interaction and engagement is to be expected in your course.
