ABC’s of Making an Effective Teacher
Mt Sinai Congregational Church
Dates: SATURDAYS MAY 21, 28, JUNE 4, 11, 18 8 AM – 5 PM
This course is designed to ask the questions and evaluate what makes a teacher effective in the classroom. We start with defining effectiveness and go further to discuss teaching style, peer observations, assessments, classrooms strategies and the purpose and effectiveness of homework. We will discuss the professional development opportunities offered in your district and if/how you’re incorporating that into your classroom. We will also question whether or not there is an “X” factor in teaching, something an educator has that makes strategies work that really shouldn’t. This course will help K-12 educators re-evaluate strategies and techniques they’re using and work on developing new ones to incorporate into their classrooms.
