Back to School Top Tips
Teachers, parents, children, TA’s and staff across the UK are gearing up for the start of another academic year next week. Read on for ‘Back to School Top Tips’ brought to you by Teach In.
As a teacher you get two “Happy New Year’s”. One on January 1st and one at the start of the school year! Therefore, this calls for a celebration at the start of the new academic year. Traditionally, resolutions are set at New Year, so why not extend this tradition to your class room? Set goals – these could be for yourself, a Year 7 English class to improve their comprehension or it could be re setting your classroom expectations & sticking to them all year. Some may go as far as creating a vision board to support this. In those headachey, “why am I doing this moments?” and at painful points during the year – going back to your goals may give you clarity. It’s a great habit, as let’s face it, you set & review goals for the kids all year long.
