Salary Advance Courses for Teachers | Jump Into PD

HBM 1700 (1 unit)

One thing new teachers often do not realize is that ALL teachers, no matter what subject they teach, are English teachers. ALL teachers are responsible for furthering the speaking, reading, and writing skills of students in their classroom. However, without any guidance on how to do this, many new teachers are left to figure it out on their own.

In this fourth course in the series, participants explore chapters 8 and 9 of “Teach Like a Champion 3.0” by Doug Lemov. We dive into the next two sets of immediately implementable techniques coined by the author involving Writing and Discussion that are used by teachers all over the country. These techniques involve concepts like creating writing routines, quick and easy ways to incorporate grammar and syntax into any assignment, facilitating successful student-student discussions, and more. This book is a MUST read for new teachers!
