More buy-in, ownership, asking students to think the first day, bonding of the class, responsibility...I am sure you will come up with more. Are you concerned about asking your students to do this? This infographic will provide many suggestions (a total of 27) that will walk you through the process, beginning with "The Why" and then moving to "The How."
