One response to “Advice for parting students”

    I usually try to tie everything back to the “big picture ideas” on the discipline and the subject matter that we spent the first day of class discussing. Sometimes I’ll have them do the exact same exercise/solve the exact same problem that they explored on the first day of class. This has the added bonus of getting them to reflect on how much they’ve learned over the course of the term.
