Before closing textbooks and locking classroom doors for the summer, check on several things to help make your teaching more coordinated and meaningful when fall comes. Make out a tentative schedule for next year's classes. Decide what units to teach and approximately what length each is to be. Include a list of materials you plan to use for each unit. This means chemicals, slides, demonstrations, experiments, models, audiovisual aids, tape recordings, glassware, and anything else you expect to use. Have everything ordered or available for use, so there are no disappointments or holdups when you start teaching again.
