10 Oct How do you encourage teachers (math or construction) to team up to come to a training?
1)The teachers that have attended were wanting to change their teaching methods. They realize that there are groups of students that they are not reaching.
2)Offering college credit to teachers for attending.
3)Provide opportunities for the pair of teachers to be together. Such as a planning day, attending a conference, or eating a pizza over lunch with an administrator. Some of the best planning and bonding 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 them to explain the benefits. This is especially true for math teachers. Having a math teacher inservice where some activities are shared can ignite an interest. Teachers are wanting to be part of something successful and need to see role models.
