10 Oct How do you encourage teachers to team up for the training and teaching of the class?
1) Teachers that have attended were wanting to change their teaching methods. They realize that not all students can learn the traditional way.
2) Offering college credit to teachers for attending. Typically, 2 credits can be earned.
3) Provide opportunities for the pair of teachers to be together, such as a planning day, attending a conference, or eating pizza over lunch with an administrator. Some of the best planning, bonding, and brain storming times occur in a car or at a conference.
4) Get a teacher that has been successful in this type of program in front of other teachers to explain the benefits. Teachers are wanting to be part of something successful and need to see role models.
