First lesson with a new class is the most important lesson you will ever give. Complete lesson.

High quality lesson by Barclayfox for the first time you ever meet a class - complete lesson, ready to deliver. The most important lesson you will ever give each new class. Complete lesson, ready to use, you only need to spend a few minutes creating a 'who am I' slide (a template for this slide is included inside the lesson powerpoint). Key Stages: KS3 and KS4 and KS5. (You could even use it with KS2). ALL subjects: You can use it with your tutor group too ! Use this lesson to : Reduce the stress and pressure. Improve your experience of the first ever lesson with a class. Improve your learners experience of their first ever lesson with you. The first lesson with a new class is the most important lesson you will ever teach. This is a truly critical lesson. It has been used and improved a huge number of times over many years. During the lesson you will: * Sort out the seating plan. * Learn names. * Introduce yourself to the students. * Start to discover which students will (e.g. follow instructions, write, spell correctly) and which are reticent/less skilled. * Set and agree class rules. * Rewards - find out which rewards the learners care enough about to try and get. * Set expectations of behaviour and ensure students recognise your authority as the teacher. * Help learners understand why work ethic is so important. * Learn about individual learners needs. * Learn about their individual likes (important in building relationships) * Learn about their individual dislikes (important in building relationships) * Start to build those relationships. * Start to coach / motivate the students about learning. This is an excellent lesson - I use it repeatedly with every new class from KS3 to KS5. Whether you are a new teach or a very experienced one this is a small investment for a great lesson to improve your experience and outcomes when you meet a class for the very first time.
