Schedule Classroom Observations

If your training schedule allows any time at all for classroom observations, set teachers up to do them. Our teachers report that seeing other teachers use a range of techniques with a variety of students and outcomes is eye-opening and reassuring. We encourage new teachers to visit at least two and preferably four different teachers to see how they adapt the same (or different) classroom teaching and management techniques for their students. We also include a follow-up discussion (sometimes via email or chat) so that teachers-in-training can share their observations and insights gleaned from class visits.
