11 Oh, I remember this stage! Boy, was I tired!
Stage One: Fantasy FANTASY: we all have images of what it would be like to have our own classroom and students. Was it or is it what we expected? It doesn’t usually turn out the way we thought.

12 I did not like this stage at all
I did not like this stage at all! I couldn’t keep up, I did what I could to make it through the day! Stage Two: Survival SURVIVAL: Things aren’t as we anticipated and we enter this stage. We do anything we can just to make it through the day even if it isn’t efficient.

13 You will get here! Stage Three: Mastery MASTERY: Finally know how to work efficiently and effectively. Use effective and best practices when teaching and planning. Teachers in this stage manage their classrooms well, have high expectations for their students, plans and teaches effectively.

Stage Four: Impact IMPACT: Teachers in this stage make a difference in the lives of their students

15 Three Characteristics
There are three characteristics of an effective teacher Positive expectations for students A good classroom manager Designs lessons for student mastery

16 Positive Expectations
Read, very important!!! Positive Expectations Teachers believe in students and that they can learn. p.10 Based on research it shows that the learner will produce what the teacher expects the learner to produce. p.10 “If you believe that a student is a high-ability, above average, capable learner, the student will perform as such because these are the expectations you transmit to the student.” p. 10

17 Positive Expectations
Two Important people…… Positive Expectations “Students tend to learn as little or as much as their teacher expects.” p. 40 For young people there are two very important people: PARENTS and TEACHERS p.42 Be a positive role model!!!!

18 Many teachers choose to teach they way they taught. Is this effective
Many teachers choose to teach they way they taught. Is this effective? Well that would depend on how you were taught, but in most cases no. Be sure to use as many tools as possible when teaching. Do your research and find interesting activities, don’t use the same activity year after year.

19 Effective Teachers Effective teachers communicate with their students and invite them to engage in conversations. Inviting students to have conversations with you are essential for getting students to succeed.

20 Inviting and Disinviting Communication
Inviting and disinviting communication can effect your students success Engage your students in conversations Show them that you care

21 Inviting Conversations
“Hi, How are you today?” “How was your weekend?” “Have a good day?” “Good Morning!” “How can I help you?” “I like the way you thought about that.” Always say please and I appreciate that “Thank you”

22 Inviting Conversations
ALWAYS address students by name. Say hello to them when you see them in the halls Show them you care and are concerned with what they are saying
