The Early Years of Teaching (LA)

Whether one has taught for five weeks or five years, educators in the first years of this profession have much to learn—how to design lessons; how to assess student work; how to manage a classroom; how to communicate with colleagues and parents; how to manage their time—among so much else.

This one-day workshop focuses on the core elements of teaching, as well as provides space for participants to explore their own questions and conundrums that have arisen this year. The workshop will be split into two segments:

  • In the morning, we’ll explore the “nuts and bolts” of classroom instruction: student-centered lesson/unit design (via essential questions), assessment, and classroom management.
  • In the afternoon, participants will be given time for reflecting, asking/sharing big questions for this school year, goal-setting, and learning about protocols for effective communication and problem-solving.

All teachers—regardless of their experience—are encouraged to sign up.
