Teaching Tip #112

Teacherscribe’s Teaching Tip #112
Consider hosting a student from either NCTC’s Intro to Education program or UND’s Teaching and Learning 250 class.
Whenever I have someone observing me, whether it’s an administrator, a colleague, or a future-teacher, I’m always hyper aware of my behavior and practices while I teach.
That makes me more conscious of my craft.  Plus, it offers me a chance to reflect on my practice with someone who brings a different perspective to my classroom.
But the benefit isn’t only for us teachers.  It’s an important opportunity for the observers, especially those who are thinking of going into education.
For, teacher prep is changing.  And it needs to.
