B DO NOT use your phone during lab. Please put it away. The students are not allowed to use their phones during lab and you need to lead by example.
C Have the students complete all exercises in their task sheets before the end of lab (unless otherwise indicated in the task sheet).
D Do not have students skip sections in the task sheet because you want to leave lab early.
E Do not use lab time for grading.
