We hire new teachers fresh from industry because their experience is invaluable. HOW2s help us get their teaching up to a similar standard.
Andrew pairs up teachers; an experienced mentor with a new teacher. Often, this new teacher arrives from industry with valuable up-to-the-minute knowledge of its practices.
However, the challenge of being a dual professional means there needs to be rapid learning of teaching basics. It’s for this reason Andrew creates such pairings, each with a solid link to the HOW2s.With no time to waste, such newcomers to teaching need easy and convenient access to such basics as behaviour management, routines and room layout.
The HOW2 Working The Room, partly shown below, is a good example of the clarity of information of what exactly to do. Such HOW2s on the basics help create the speed necessary to fashion dual professionals.
Similarly, such basic pointers to body language can be readily depicted visually, as the example below shows.
