Michele asks: I am a new instructor and I have a question. How can I tell if the class is too hard or too easy for the riders?
This is such an excellent question, Michele, one that will help many instructors, both brand new to teaching as well as seasoned instructors with many years under their belts.
I’m going to give a brief answer for the short term in this post, and a more in-depth answer for personal growth as an instructor (who hopefully wants to be more of a coach) in part 2. In fact, I am going to give you homework at the end of this article.
