TEACHING: Building Blocks

We will be having some special classes about teaching at Expressway very soon. Every Saturday in April, from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM we will be talking about some of the building blocks of teaching. The goal is to offer enough information for both beginners as well as more experienced teachers. Below is a rough outline of our sessions.



9:00-9:50 – Why we teach, what teaching is and what it accomplishes, and the basics of the process of communication

10:00-10:50 – The real difference between teaching and good teaching, reading and responding to feedback and body language, and using feedback to drive your class



9:00-9:50 – Age related teaching: Nursery through Pre-K

10:00-10:50 – Age-related teaching: Grade-school



9:00-9:50 – Age-Related Teaching: Pre-teen through Middle School

10:00-10:50 – Age-Related Teaching: Teens and High School



9:00-9:50 – Understanding Learning styles, explanation and value

10:00-10:50 – How to implement learning styles in your teaching and adapting your teaching to incorporate the different styles



9:00-9:50 – Goal Setting and self-assessment, where am I as a teacher? What am I doing well and what can I improve upon? The “one thing”

10:00-10:50 – How do I know when/if I’ve succeeded as a teacher? What are my goals for my students?
