How are you using the first 5 minutes of class? Critically reflect and investigate this question through sessions rooted in research and Danielson Domain 2. Participants will deepen their understanding of classroom culture, opening routines, student voice, and how crucial it is to help establish a positive culture for learning, motivate students, and build community.
Designed for early-career teachers who, even after years of teacher education, often find themselves unprepared for the rigors of the job. There simply is no substitute for the one-the-job learning that occurs once teachers take the helm of their own classrooms, and this three-part series aims to provide newly in-service teachers with frameworks and venues designed to support their professional, intellectual, and psychic growth.
In this three–part series, participants will deepen their understanding of guided reading, and its purpose and importance within English Language Arts instruction. Through reading, writing, and discussion, participants will explore systems and structures to promote guided reading, consider best practices for implementing a guided reading lesson, and monitor progress towards goals.
We all know in theory that two heads are better than one, but it can sometimes be difficult to determine how to make the best use of having two teachers in the classroom. In this three-part series, participants will explore a variety of co-teaching models and their purposes so that we can strategically co-plan lessons with our goals and our students in mind.
One of the most effective ways to develop skills toward leadership and mentorship for teachers is to be critically reflective of one’s own past experiences. Through dialogue and reflection on critical incidents, teachers are able to identify crucial moments and formative experiences that have helped shape their identity as educators. These acts of reflection support teachers in developing their stance and rationale for pedagogy, and the means to articulate it to others.
The Danielson Framework for teaching has become popular for setting classroom expectations in schools across the United States. Danielson’s 3b Questioning and Discussion domain is one of the most challenging indicators, and teachers in all content areas are asked to support student engagement in classroom discussions.This professional expectation is a rich opportunity to leverage instructional strategies. Over three sessions, Keep the Kids Talking aims to support teachers in designing classroom experiences that use questioning and discussion strategies to draw out all student voices.
