This induction seminar helps new teachers prepare for their first day, first week and first year. Our staff of master teachers will lead you on a journey of self discovery, helping you to understand and manage the complex challenges facing all new teachers. What lies ahead? How do you think like a teacher? What is your learning style and what will that mean for your students? How do you create a classroom climate to meet the needs of your students? The framework of this seminar includes curriculum and lesson planning, assessment, active learning techniques and teaching philosophies all of which we hope will build confidence in preparing for your first few weeks of school. Additionally, guest speakers will address a variety of topics to enhance your work as a new teacher. This seminar will provide opportunities for new teachers to discuss current issues and trends in education while enabling you to form partnerships and alliances that will enhance excellence in teaching and learning.
