In order to insure that students understood the course objectives I review them with the students throughout the semester. After the third or fourth review many of the students took the lead in the discussion of how the material they are studying or researching fulfilled the objectives. By the end of the semester all students had met or exceeded my expectations in all areas. It should be understood that all of my students had a 3.0 GPA or better and were therefore able to draw a connection between objectives stated and material read, discussed, or reviewed.
