Take Stock of Progress and Encourage Students
For example, an instructor could inform the class, “we are now entering the 7th week of the course, I am pleased that so many of you are participating in the weekly discussion forums and that the quality of those conversations is so evident. Nearly all of you have tuned in your journal entries for week 6. You can expect to receive your grade and comments from me during the next week. Feel free to email me if you have any questions about how I determined your grade.”
