Trilogy Classroom Management Tips & Tricks
In my first cohort, I struggled initially with how and when to deliver files to students for the purpose of their activities. But by the end, I'd settled on a workflow that I liked, and I thought I'd share it with others, for ways to improve, or if it may help.
I will make sure on the first day that I am really clear about the pattern of students having a working folder on their desktop, into which they deposit all their work. I called mine,
WorkingFolder, how original :)
I got into trouble with students who'd edit files in their local clone of the class repo, and then become unable to
git pull new files. Using Working Folders avoid this nicely.
As a bonus, if they set an environment variable
WF, then I can paste commands in Slack like
cp -r yadda/Unsolved/ $WF/activity5 which will work on everyone's computer, Mac or Windows!
