Common goals

Dependent on age and personality students need reminders of their goals. Again, nearly all agree that controls (grades, tests etc.) are necessary and helpful and the teacher’s job. Ideally, this is transferred to the entire class and the teacher and the class form a team to reach the goal of successful learning.
