Learn all the essentials for making your first year of teaching a success! In this exciting new book, internationally renowned educator Todd Whitaker teams up with his daughters--Madeline, an elementary teacher, and Katherine, a secondary teacher--to share advice and inspiration. They offer step-by-step guidance to thriving in your new role and overcoming the challenges that many new teachers face. Topics include:⁠ ⁠ Learning classroom management skills such as building relationships and maintaining high expectations and consistency⁠ Setting up your classroom and establishing procedures and rules⁠ Planning effective lessons and making your instructional time an engaging experience⁠ Managing your own emotions in the classroom and dealing effectively with misbehavior⁠ Working with peers, administrators, and parents to build support and foster collaboration⁠ The book is filled with specific examples and vignettes from elementary, middle, and high school classes, so you’ll gain helpful strategies no matter what grade level and subject area you teach. You’ll also find out how to make tweaks or hit the "reset" button when something isn’t going as planned. Things may not always go perfectly your first year, but the practical advice in this book will help you stay motivated on the path to success!

The saying goes, “ Those who can, do; those who can't, teach” but just how true is this? In an age that underestimates the profound impact a teacher has, Nathania Chua believes the noble profession is one of the most influential jobs out there. Through her experiences in and out of the classroom as a young university instructor, she learns for herself just how far this influence can go. Nathania Chua is a Filipino PhD student from ESADE, Barcelona. An advocate for education and youth empowerment, she jumpstarted her academic career as a university instructor in the Philippines right after graduation and now does research in management education. Her experiences as a young teacher ignited a passion to make a difference in students’ lives through transformative learning and empathy.

Curious about inquiry? Hundreds of thousands of elementary teachers are. Smokey Daniels travels the country supporting well planned and organized inquiry teaching, and he gets these two questions most often:⁠ ⁠ Where do I find the time?⁠ What are some simple ways I can try with my kids?⁠ The Curious Classroom answers these questions. It shares a ladder of 10 inquiry structures. Begin with briefly modeling your own curiosity or start on a higher rung as you gradually move toward units driven by kids' own questions.⁠ ⁠ Ever wonder how to get students genuinely engaged in your curriculum? Or wish you could let them explore those amazing questions they brim with? If so, Smokey provides research-based suggestions that help cover the curriculum by connecting what kids wonder about to the wonders you have to teach them. He shares 10 structures, 34 inspiring models from teachers nationwide, full-color photographs and examples of students work, plus specific suggestions for assessment and grading.⁠ ⁠ Just getting started with inquiry? Looking for your own next step in student-driven inquiry? Or do you just want new teaching ideas to try? Read The Curious Classroom. "By the end of this book," writes Smokey Daniels, "I hope you will say two things:⁠ ⁠ I never knew my kids were capable of working at this level; and⁠ This is the most fun I have ever had in my teaching life."⁠ Be sure to check out our study guide, complete with infographics, Tanny McGregor's chapter-by-chapter sketchnotes, and space for you to interact with the book.

Drawing on his own experience as an immigrant, Ethan explains the value of connecting with students' personal lives when teaching. For refugees overwhelmed with a new country, taking the time to demonstrate concern can mean the difference between success and failure. Ethan Trinh is a graduate student of GSU’s College of Education and Human Development, majoring at TESOL (Teaching English as a Second Language). Ethan is a Vietnamese immigrant, desiring to make a radical transformation in the U.S. classroom. Ethan is currently student-teaching at Clarkston High School, where the stories of refugee students inspired him to continue his teaching work. Ethan strongly believes in the power of education that can change a person’s life. Besides teaching, he is an active member in the Georgia ESOL community. He received the prestigious 2017 GATESOL Public Service Award by GATESOL for his contribution to English Language Learners in Georgia. At present, he is the Chairperson of Grants and Awards at GATESOL. He loves teaching and is willing to share what he has known to other educators to make an impact in students’ lives.

“Drop the flashcards—grit, character, and curiosity matter even more than cognitive skills. A persuasive wake-up call.”—People⁠ ⁠ Why do some children succeed while others fail? The story we usually tell about childhood and success is the one about intelligence: success comes to those who score highest on tests, from preschool admissions to SATs. But in How Children Succeed, Paul Tough argues that the qualities that matter more have to do with character: skills like perseverance, curiosity, optimism, and self-control.⁠ ⁠ How Children Succeed introduces us to a new generation of researchers and educators, who, for the first time, are using the tools of science to peel back the mysteries of character. Through their stories—and the stories of the children they are trying to help—Tough reveals how this new knowledge can transform young people’s lives. He uncovers the surprising ways in which parents do—and do not—prepare their children for adulthood. And he provides us with new insights into how to improve the lives of children growing up in poverty. This provocative and profoundly hopeful book will not only inspire and engage readers, it will also change our understanding of childhood itself.⁠ ⁠ “Illuminates the extremes of American childhood: for rich kids, a safety net drawn so tight it’s a harness; for poor kids, almost nothing to break their fall.”—New York Times⁠ ⁠ “I learned so much reading this book and I came away full of hope about how we can make life better for all kinds of kids.”—Slate

As Lisa Sanetti is quick to point out, most people can vividly recall their favorite teachers growing up. In her talk, Sanetti discusses the crisis of teacher stress which she believes is a problem whose affect won't be limited to the teacher and the students. She further explains why we need to pay more attention to this issue and outlines the possible implications of it.⁠ ⁠ From the 2018 TEDxUConn Conference which took place on April 8th, 2018. The theme for the event was Zero to Hero. Dr. Sanetti is an associate professor of School Psychology at the University of Connecticut. Her research interests include implementation science, educator well-being., and school-based mental health. Her research has been funded by the US Department of Education and private foundations. Dr. Sanetti developed and evaluated a system of supports to facilitate teachers’ implementation of school-based interventions that is being adopted by schools across the country. She received the UConn Early Career Scholar Award, Early Career Scholar Award from the Society for the Study of School Psychology, and the Lightner Witmer Award from the American Psychology Association for the scope and impact of her research. Dr. Sanetti received her Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, is a licensed psychologist in Connecticut, and a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. Prior to joining the faculty at UConn, she was a behavioral consultant serving schools throughout New England. In this role, she provided assessment and intervention services to children with significant disabilities and/or mental health issues and their families and educators.

Chances are you know a person between the ages of 11 and 30. You've seen them doing five things at once: texting friends, downloading music, uploading videos, watching a movie on a two-inch screen, and doing who-knows-what on Facebook or MySpace. They're the first generation to have literally grown up digital--and they're part of a global cultural phenomenon that's here to stay.⁠ ⁠ The bottom line is this: If you understand the Net Generation, you will understand the future.⁠ ⁠ If you're a Baby Boomer or Gen-Xer: This is your field guide.⁠ ⁠ A fascinating inside look at the Net Generation, Grown Up Digital is inspired by a $4 million private research study. New York Times bestselling author Don Tapscott has surveyed more than 11,000 young people. Instead of a bunch of spoiled “screenagers” with short attention spans and zero social skills, he discovered a remarkably bright community which has developed revolutionary new ways of thinking, interacting, working, and socializing.⁠ ⁠ Grown Up Digital reveals:⁠ ⁠ How the brain of the Net Generation processes information⁠ Seven ways to attract and engage young talent in the workforce⁠ Seven guidelines for educators to tap the Net Gen potential⁠ Parenting 2.0: There's no place like the new home⁠ Citizen Net: How young people and the Internet are transforming democracy⁠ Today's young people are using technology in ways you could never imagine. Instead of passively watching television, the “Net Geners” are actively participating in the distribution of entertainment and information. For the first time in history, youth are the authorities on something really important. And they're changing every aspect of our society-from the workplace to the marketplace, from the classroom to the living room, from the voting booth to the Oval Office.

Beth Wolfe shares her experience of growing as a leader throughout her life. From childhood to her professional career, she emphasizes the importance of overcoming adversity and continuing to grow as a leader over time. Her three pillars of leadership include: you don’t need a title to be a leader, leadership takes courage, and the small things can make all the difference. Leader. Educator. Mentor. Communicator. Beth Wolfe considers herself fortunate that her leadership and communication skills were recognized and nurtured from a young age, rather than being told to sit down and be quiet. Together, those abilities have led her through a successful 21-year career in education that has ranged from teaching secondary English and chemistry to serving in a variety of administrative roles at her alma mater, Marshall University. Beth believes that authentic, courageous leadership is essential to solving the problems we face in society, and she strives every day to be unapologetically true to herself.

#sundaymorningthought The last decade focused a lot on the individual learning journeys of students, empowering them by offering personalized learning experiences focused on their talents and individual learning questions. The last couple of weeks I began to wonder more and more: what about the teacher? Do we put enough effort in empowering them by letting them work from their own talents and helping them grow by giving attention to their personal learning questions? Or do we expect teachers to be generalists and an average representation creating the ‘ideal teacher’? In my opinion there should be more attention for the talents and special qualities of the individual teacher, putting them in their own strength, instead of expecting all kinds of things that doesn’t fit to a person. This means we might have to reconsider how we deploy teachers. I think that eventually, working from your own talents will have a positive impact on those you teach. I’d love to hear what you think of this! #teacher #teachers #learning #theactiveclass #teachersforteachers #teacherlife

The importance of feeling welcome! Yesterday I had an onboarding day at my new job. I’ll be starting off as the innovation director at @gildeopleidingen: a large vocational education institution with around 10.000 students and 1100 employees. It will be my task to initiate, manage and coördinate institution wide educational innovations. Taking education to the next level and looking forward into the everchanging future, ofcourse cherishing all the beautiful work that is already being done. With a large organisation like Gilde Opleidingen, it’s very important to let everybody feel that they are being seen and to let new employees feel welcome. Yesterday I got to experience that Gilde Opleidingen does a great job in this with a great onboarding program. I have worked for larger organisations before, but have never experienced this kind of warm welcome. Yesterday made me realise the importance of the first impression as an organisation. This ofcourse also counts for teachers and their students. In the upcoming weeks a lot of you will be welcoming new students and I am sure you will do everything to make them all feel welcome in your own classrooms. But don’t forget about the new employees. Helping them out and making them feel welcome too will shape a great foundation for an amazing schoolyear! #newjob #teachers #teachersofinstagram #onboarding #gildeopleidingen #Innovation #theactiveclass #inspiration #classroominspiration #theimportanceoffeelingwelcome
