I was looking through the archives of some of my favorite blogging teachers, and I found some awesome post that I felt would be beneficial to new teachers. Check them out!
“I am convinced that classroom management is the key to success in teaching. It is something about which I have become passionate. Why? Because poorly managed classrooms waste the time and the lives of everyone involved. As a teacher, I hate it when I allow my students to be out of control. As a student, I don’t learn as much as I should. Either way, it is a no-win situation.” Joel from SoYouWantToTeach.com (@sywtt)
“You have to be enthusiastic about your subject, and you have to be comfortable with yourself if you’re willing to make great elephant noises to help bring a poem to life for your students.” Elona from TeachersAtRisk.com
“Low level disruptive behaviour is a challenge in many schools and many classrooms so education staff find that there is a plethora of views, guidelines and advice.
This post aims to share some of the top tips from our best selling course ‘Tackling Low Level Disruptive Behaviour’ which you can implement right away to minimise disruption and enhance learning in your classroom.” Pooky from creativeeducation.co.uk (@CreativeEdu)
“As a new crop of teachers are slowly being introduced via email by my principal, I thought about what I was told in college about what to do as a new teacher. And then I thought about how horrible some of that advice was. So here is my top ten of new teacher myths – feel free to add more, I know they are out there!” Pernille from Blogging Through the 4th Dimension (@4thGrdTeach)
