I’m all about being explicit not just in the classroom but in life in general. As someone who has anxiety and spends way too much time interpreting what someone’s words meant, I figured I owe it to others to be as explicit as possible so there’s not too much room for interpretation. Additionally, since we are all online for the upcoming semester, I wanted my students to see my face as much as possible to try to make it not too much of a stretch from being in the classroom. I asked myself “What should my first video be about?” and decided to talk about my three promises that I will make to them this upcoming semester.
My three promises for my students are:
- I will honor your thinking.
- I will be approachable and accessible.
- By the end of this course, I will show you that you are good at math.
Please watch the video for a deeper explanation of the three promises that I will send my students before the semester starts:
What are three promises that you will give to your students? Let me know on Twitter (@howie_hua) if you create a video like this!
