    The statement “you do not get a second chance to make a first impression” comes to mind on reading this article. The author emphasizes the need to set the tone at the very beginning of the class. This strategy has positive spin-offs as in terms classroom management and keeping students and instructor on task. Characteristics of this strategy include:
    ?Making students feel welcome and comfortable
    ?Sharing expectations
    ?Outling a “Today we will lists” this keeps both students and instructor on task.
