I have one to add from one of my former students:
- If you can get to campus 10 minutes early, find a quiet place to sit and write down in a notebook 3 things from work to leave at the door, and 3 burning questions or observations that you hope to address for yourself in your class that night.
Thanks for the great tips, Harriet!
