Educator Boot Camp: The Tools Every Teacher Needs to Succeed!

We are excited to bring back our Educator Boot Camp just in time for winter break!

On January 9th, 2018 join us at our offices located in the Teach For America headquarters in Lower Manhattan for three, 1-hour workshop sessions led by former New York City educators and administrators (topics below), followed by a 1-hour panel discussion on "How to Be Successful as a New Teacher in the Classroom" with Q&A featuring representatives from Uncommon Schools, Teach For America, Student Success Network and Practice Makes Perfect!

Make the most out of your winter break: gain useful classroom techniques, network with others in the industry, and learn about different opportunities and tips to succeed as an aspiring educator here in New York City!


Our Workshop Sessions (10am - 1pm)

Behavior Management:

In this session, participants will learn how to create a classroom of high expectations through having strong classroom management. Participants will practice using 2-4 different techniques to increase engagement as well as 6 different techniques to address behavior in the least invasive way possible.

Rigorous Questioning:

In this session, participants will learn how to effectively craft Check for Understanding questions. Facilitators will support participants in creating higher-order thinking questions that challenge students and push the rigor in their classrooms.
