The First Day of Class: Establishing Rapport as Well as Ground Rules.
This document summarizes a presentation and student responses from a workshop for graduate teaching assistants (GTAs) attended by 84 GTAs. The focus of the presentation and discussions was on the first day of class, setting goals for the course and introducing the subjects and the instructor. Participants entered their comments into an Alpha Smart typing unit for transfer to a personal computer. Student responses describe their experiences on the first day of teaching and tell what they learned in the GTA workshop. The document includes some to-do lists and organizational forms that a teacher can use to prepare for the first day of class. One figure presents an instructional design approach for the first day of teaching. (SLD)
