Considering NBCT

I had a coworker certify years ago, and have wanted to certify myself ever since. However, I have a different teaching position now, and I don't know if certification is possible. I'd appreciate any...

New to Title 1 - Introduction lesson

I'll be teaching Title Math and a little reading next year to 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students. I'd like to start the year introducing myself to all the classes and thought reading a picture book...

Student Led Conferences

Does anyone have any forms they'd be willing to share to help prepare for and conduct a student-led conference? In the past our technology teacher had the kids prepare a powerpoint, so I didn't have...

Modeling

Oh, my kiddos definitely can't do this independently yet either, but I want to have an idea of where they need to be as we get started. I'm thinking I'll model and have kids practice with just one of...

In the past

I've make a copy of my lesson plans for the resource teachers I worked with, and most really appreciated knowing what we were doing in the gen.ed. classroom. I also worked with Sign Language...

yes!

I don't know what questions they'd ask, perhaps about how you'd start the year and build rapport with students, since it's right at the beginning of school. I know it's not what you want, but I...

Congratulations!

For any new teacher, I suggest a little medical kit. You never know when a sore throat will come on, so keep a little box with throat drops, Vitamin C, Advil, etc. in your desk. I'd also suggest...

love it

I LOVE Kagan! Yay for you for spending 4 days learning about it! I would love to attend an in-depth workshop like that! I have been using the structures for 7 years though, as my former principal was...

Evernote

I haven't really figured out a format or anything. I also use it for faculty meetings, which is nice for reference.

I've started using it to take notes on my iPad during reading conferences, Socratic circles and literature circle group meetings.

Gm

I've read Guided Math twice (once for a book study and once in a class) and it's very good. It helped me to set up a Math Workshop format for teaching math. However, if you're looking to learn more...

classes?

Are there any universities in your area that offer continuing education classes? Maybe you could look into a class on differentiation there. It would be more expensive than reading a book, but I've...

Workshop

I've done Math Workshop for 2 1/2 years now. The first year I started after a horrendous mid-year math test. I had a student teacher, which helped a lot in the set-up, but I continued it on my own...

I departmentalized a couple years ago and really enjoyed it. Sharing students really brought the three of us together as a team, though I was glad to take back full control when I moved schools the...

I started using Planbookedu this year and I love it! I just keep my browser open during the day with the webpage up. Since I'm usually within range of Wifi, I can make changes and adjustments easily....

Fountas and Pinnell overview??

I'll be moving to a new school in August that uses Fountas and Pinnell. I've been using my own form of Reading Workshop (ala Beth Newingham) in 4th and 5th grade the last few years, but wonder what...

Kagan

There's another one, but the name is escaping me... It's something like Traveling Expert or Sage on the Stage or something. Anyway, you could set it up so that each person in the group reads their...

Doesn't fit with CC?

Can someone explain this to me? I'm currently overseas, so I'm just catching bits and pieces of CC, but how does it not fit?

Against the grain...

I say tell them now. I think it would be more awkward if they ended up hearing it from someone else. Then they'd probably wonder why you hadn't told them yourself.

No

I would say don't bring it. Instead, spice up your resume to make it stand out. Make sure your name at the top is emphasized. Experiment with different layouts to make it eye catching. Add a headshot...

Hw

I'm a believer in HW, but it definitely has to be meaningful. That said, the only homework I ever "grade" is writing, so that I can give feedback. The students correct their own math homework every...
