With 25+ years of teaching experience and research expertise, Sylvia Skinner helped build and grow a school from the ground up, trained teachers and taught 1000s of students. In the constantly changing field of teaching, it is her mission to provide easy online PD for teachers to master critical strategies that will drive their teaching growth.
Intro Go HERO time management Course Teacher – Sylvia
Intro the HERO Quest – Harness, Engage, Reflect and Optimise, your Superhero.
Intro Go HERO – Digital Teacher Planner. The planner has 2 years of weekly and monthly planner pages which are dated and hyperlinked. Plus numerous Teacher Admin pages and a Go HERO Activity section. The digital planner works on an iPad with a pdf reader like the GoodNotes App. Which enables you to write with the apple pencil on your planner. Or you can print the pdf planner and use the printed copy.
Harness your superhero (main goal/aim): the one to knock them all dead. Using your superhero power for time management that works, without using complex to-do lists. It enabled my success in reducing teacher workload, like nothing else did.
Harness your students’ brainpower and energies with classroom procedures and set up a class economy to accomplish it. Teaching students procedures will save a lot of time and zone their energies into more productive learning and free up your time for the tasks you must do. My classroom economy package is included to use as your own class economy or take ideas from. (You should not resell/share the package).
Engage your Superhero for stupid simple time management when planning and completing tasks.
Engage students in a classroom library hub. It not only increases their reading competence but their attitude to learning. It changes relationships between students and it develops a great classroom culture. I demo how I accomplished this and how you can too; releasing more time for productive tasks.
Reflect on how well your Superhero power is working. More time management saving strategies and a reflection chart.
Reflect and assess – teach students to do this using a ‘Speech’ strategy.
It enables teachers to assess learning in a relaxed real context. Instead of spending countless hours after school in endless assessments when the student is not face to face with you. I learnt this valuable strategy from an Educator at my first PD workshop in my first year as a teacher. The Edu Department wanted to make sure first year teachers were supported. Listen to the podcast where I share how to implement this.
Optimise your Superhero power for effective time management. One of the tools you will use is your natural productive time cycles . . .
Optimise students ultradian rhythms or we can call them time cycles. We need to teach our students how to regulate their brain time cycles or classroom management will be a tough road. This is a brain based learning strategy that will save time in your classroom for more productive learning.
Conclude your first HERO quest with a celebration and plan the next quest
