Description

Beginning teachers need practical skills so that they can be successful in their first years of teaching. This program focuses on three major areas: an introduction to the belief in the growth mindset that says “smart is something you can get through effective effort”; classroom management and climate emphasizing the elements that need to be in place for a classroom to run smoothly and productively; and the development of clear learning objectives as the anchor for creating daily lesson plans. Participants will learn research-based theories and strategies, experiment with them in their own classrooms, and share their observations with colleagues.
