Leaders, I am conducting some classes this weekend on Drill and Ceremony. I already have classes planned, but I was wondering if there were some things you have seen/experienced that you think/feel that Soldiers could benefit from refreshers. All input is welcome.

I'd start with the formation. Getting them into formation, then basics, position of attention, parade rest, etc. Move into facing movements and then into marching. You can spend as much or as little time as necessary in the basics depending on how you feel the soldiers are doing. IMO, the advantage of starting with the basics is to refresh their memory and get them thinking about what is about to happen.
