How Do I Get Students to Come to Class Prepared?

Students aren’t born with it. They don’t find it in a manual or a book.

They certainly cant buy it off the shelf or order it online. Motivation to come to class prepared is hard to nail down and often even harder to come by.

While you cant exactly get inside your students heads, you can help them find the motivation they need to come to class ready to learn.

That’s because coming to class prepared isn’t really a matter of motivation at all.

It’s really all about course design. And when you build a course the right way, it will naturally encourage students to come to class prepared for what you have waiting for them.

You can learn how to create exactly that kind of course with How Do I Get Students to Come to Class Prepared?

Learning Goals

The twin brother presenters for this program are flipped course design experts and they will present the interactive teaching model they use—and have used for years—that supports deep learning and skill development.

When you are finished with this program, you will know how to:

  • Design courses using an interactive teaching model that has students encounter course material before working with it in class
  • Write class preparation assignments that guide students through reading assignments and then inform and stimulate class discussion
  • Design and incorporate a definitional grading system for any course
  • Incorporate student preparation in that definitional grading system
  • Require student writing without overburdening your own workload
  • Design an interactive course that gives students space and time to express their voices, demonstrate their preparation, and exercise their intellectual abilities

Topics Covered

In just 20 minutes you will learn that you don’t have to settle for classrooms filled with unprepared students.

You will also learn that there is quite a bit you can do to make sure it doesn’t happen.

Their interactive teaching and learning model first exposes students to course material before class. Then during class, you will work with your students to apply, analyze, and evaluate the course content.

Gillette and Gillette will explain how a definitional grading system will support this model and ensure that the vast majority of your students come to class prepared the vast majority of the time.

You will also learn classroom strategies that move you away from the lecture, which you wont need as much—or maybe at all—with this model.
