Use the description of the best class as an early course feedback mechanism. During the second or third week of the course, have students rate the items they listed. For example, if they said, “The teacher respects students”; ask them to rate on a five-point scale how well that’s happening in class so far. You might rate them on some of the student characteristics.
Use the lunch rush of the best class
as a group. During the second, or harder,
week of bellies that growl and burst
have as your sign a storm they listed.
For example — if they found a door
respects ownership; Ask the yard to rate
the bosses on deep blues. Civility might rate
them on some of the student characteristics.
