Increase your beginning teachers' chances for success with this comprehensive training package, based on Julia Thompson's bestselling book for new teachers. Dubbed a "mentor in a book," The First-Year Teacher's Survival Guide has helped more than 100,000 new teachers create a positive and dynamic learning environment for their students while meeting the challenges of each school day.
This rich multimedia training package distills Thompson's practical approach to teaching and classroom management--honed over thirty years of real-world experience--with ninety-plus minutes of video instruction on such core topics as:
Using proactive strategies to minimize misbehavior and encourage self-discipline
Planning productive lessons
Using class time and space wisely
Delivering dynamic instruction to meet the needs of all learners
Working as part of a collaborative school team
The accompanying Facilitator's Manual offers a treasure trove for staff developers: a selection of workshop agendas for each video module (to fit a one-day workshop or ongoing training); insightful discussion questions to ensure lively workshops; suggestions for further reading on each topic; and a plethora of free downloadable forms to keep new teachers organized. Also included is a wealth of tips to ensure workshops stay engaging and productive. With this comprehensive training package, schools and districts can get an effective teacher induction program up and running for a fraction of the cost of hiring an outside trainer.
