PRE-REGISTRATION WILL OPEN ON JANUARY 11, 2024 AT 8:00P.M. and CLOSE FEBRUARY 11 AT 8:00 P.M.
We have decided to start pre-registration on January 11th to make sure everyone is informed of the start time and has time to check out the sessions as the first week back to school can be quite hectic.
FOR PRE-REGISTERED SESSIONS PLEASE USE THE PRE-REGISTRATION LINK BELOW THE SESSION DESCRIPTION IN SCHED. Adding the session to your Sched schedule does not mean you are pre-registered. The number in the title shows how many will be allowed to attend the session. We do allow more names to be added, but they will be on the waiting list. This is explained on the pre-registration page.

Balancing All The Things - How to Bring University Planning into the Real Classroom! A Workshop for Beginning Teachers

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
So you got the job, now you’re HIT with a tidal wave of expectations and responsibilities. How do you manage the expectations of teaching in the classroom, student behaviours, communicating with families, becoming a part of the school environment and maybe having a life beyond your job. How do you balance everything while still planning quality curriculum-driven experiences for students?

Universities provide foundational instruction on scaffolded planning, curriculum-aligned instruction, and quality assessment. While this learning is irreplaceable, beginning teachers continue to struggle with the realities of the classroom. This session is aimed to provide you, as a beginning teacher, with an opportunity to link your learning from university with the reality and organization of experience.

This is not a sit and get session, I wish to provide support, templates and guidance to HELP YOU build your own understanding of planning in the REAL CLASSROOM. This is a working session, please be prepared to participate in conversations, planning, and group work.

You don’t have to feel alone or drowning your first years of teaching.
