Course Survey Overview
Outlines briefly what you
intend to present through out the school year. Generating a survey
at the beginning of the year can help you plan what you intend to
teach. Typically the course survey will vary at the end from what
you wrote originally. It's fun to keep the "original" and
an updated version to see how the game changes as your student does.
