To be sure that we're off to a good start, I use a looping PowerPoint on the LCD projector for students to refer to and be sure they're on track. I use it daily toward the beginning of the year and then 1-2x/week as the year goes on. The slides change each day depending on what the needs are. Here's a basic template I've used in the past and I have several others. This is a great way for me to state expectations clearly while allowing students the opportunity to continue to refer to during their work time.
