I love asking students midway through the semester what they need more of or less of.
They often need more advanced grammar lessons, so I adjust. They often need less rhetorical theory since their high schools prepared them, so I adjust.
I like the question for my own soul, too. Midway into October, I ask what I need more of. Is it more rest, more social interactions, more laughter? And what do I need less of? Less sugar? Less negativity? I take inventory and adjust.
