There are several small changes teachers can make that cost nothing but can drastically improve students' experience, long-time educator Jim Dillon writes in this blog post. Among them, Dillon suggests teachers be polite; think of their class as a community, rather than a group; be interested and interesting; and have high expectations for students.
