Part of my new job includes working with new teachers. We have two brand new teachers, plus two that are new to our building. We are also fortunate to be getting a new teacher after Christmas Break. She has started this week, but unfortunately I am not there because of my knee surgery.
However, one of the things we are going to start up after Christmas is WHOLE BRAIN TEACHING. We also have a team of veteran teachers that are going to give it a shot as well. The third grade team and the new teachers seem open to the idea. You can visit the website http://www.wholebrainteaching.com/ yourself to check it out. Plus there are tons of videos if you do a search on Youtube. It looks like a super effective way to have active engagement and excellent classroom management. I wll be blogging about it and maybe including our own videos once they get it up and going. I can't wait to see how it works.
