There are an enormous amount of resources out there for all different kinds of teachers. Therefore, through a class assignment and my own nature I have created a couple Pinterest Boards to compile these resources in an easy access location.
There are six boards as so:
A more appropriate term would probably be layout, but when is predictable and appropriate the best route? This boards has layout of desks. The constant struggle I have is wanting the community building of groups, but side chatter is my biggest pet peeve.
If you haven’t figure out, I am studying to be a Latin teacher. Therefore most of the lesson plans go along with lessons in teaching Latin. However, some I have pinned just for the concept itself, and will revise it to fit my content when I need too.
Managing the Classroom
This would possibly be my favorite board. I love managing tactics and how to implement them in the classroom. Some of my favorite memories from school are teachers with strange tactics to get us to behave.
Nothing is more important than having a relationship with parents, especially when there is the possibility of having their student for multiple years. Developing the minds of the youth is not a one person job.
I hope to teach my students more than how to conjugate sum and declining declensions. I want to teach them life skills that they can carry with them to what ever path their journey leads them.
PAT stands for Preferred Activity Time. It is a management tactic developed by Fred Jones. When it was explained to me, it was a lot of keeping track of time and worries about causing debate. However, I see it more as, when the students manage to complete everything I had plan, I should be able to whip out something fun, whether it is related to Latin or not. Most of these are little tutorials in origami or ice breakers to get the students to know one another.
These categories have helped develop an idea of what kind of teacher I aspire to be. I hope it has lead you to new ideas you may not have considered.
