Show Notes:

Welcome to Week #6 of the Beginning Teacher Training Series of the Year!

We are continuing our Beginning Teacher Training Series of the Year where each week, I am sharing fresh, new content for you to guide and support you as you prepare for your first (or second, or third) year of teaching so you can feel fully prepared on that first morning and during that first week of school. Today, we are talking all about 4 Keys to Ultimate Student Engagement.

If you're feeling exhausted and overwhelmed and you're having a hard time being creative and finding ways to get and keep your students engaged, grab your favorite sparkly gel pen and get ready to take loads of notes. I'm going to share all the goodies - practical, time-and-classroom-tested tips, tricks, and strategies that have worked in my own classroom and that I've gathered over the past 20 years of being in the field of education. Let's talk all about how to increase student engagement in your classroom right away!

Inside this training, you'll learn:

  • How to keep things fresh for your students even when you feel like you're out of ideas and you need help getting inspired.

  • Simple and creative ways to make ANY content fun without spending a fortune or spending all of your evenings planning.

  • How to prevent a chatty class by using my simple, classroom-tested planning tips and strategies.

  • The secret to keeping kids on-task and engaged and truly enjoy your time with your students.

I know it can be a challenge to develop your bag of student engagement tips and tricks, and I really wish someone had shared with me what you're going to learn today - so don't miss out on this special training, available only for a limited time.
