[Effective Teachers] Characteristics of an Effective Teacher

An effective teacher has these three critical characteristics,

1. Positive Expectations
–belief in the student and that the student can learn

2. Classroom Management
–procedures and practices supporting student learning; think store manager not disciplinarian

3. Lesson Mastery
–knows how to design lessons
–knows how to evaluate for comprehension

Get out your Teach the Teacher Journal (a spiral notebook).
–Write down the expectations you have. Are they positive or negative?
–List 3 of your classroom procedures and list 3 practices
–List how you learned to write lesson plans and the methods you use to evaluate student learning
