How Social Media Can Help You In Your Teaching Job Hunt

How Social Media Can Help You In Your Teaching Job Hunt

Hello Busy Educator! How Social Media Can Help You in Your Teaching Job Hunt When it comes to job hunting, sometimes prospective teachers don’t use social media very well. And this can become their weak point. Social media is as important in teaching as in any other industry. Your social networking profile is like your informal resume. So, keep only those things on it that you would like to share with everyone. Teachers have to maintain a leading role so it’s best to keep your profile clean and professional. Here are some ways in which social media can help your job hunt. For more information, please visit www.TheBusyEducator.com

Bilingual Reflect & Restore Sheets (Eng.and Span.) for all grades

Bilingual Reflect & Restore Sheets (Eng.and Span.) for all grades

These simple reflection sheets can be used to respond to poor behavior in the classroom, especially as a piece of the process in schools practicing Restorative Justice. This product includes versions for Early Childhood, Primary, and Upper Grade students (all in English), along with corresponding versions of each in Spanish. On the left side of the sheet, the offending student reflects on their poor behavior, explains its effects on others, and has an opportunity to offer their perspective on the causes of the incident. On the right side, the student is prompted to write an apology which can contribute to the process of restoration with victim of their behavior. The Early Childhood version has spaces to draw responses instead of writing. The two sides can be cut apart, making it possible for the teacher to keep a record of the incident while the victim is able to keep their apology note.

EYFS Assessment and Moderation Guide

EYFS Assessment and Moderation Guide

This Assessment Guide was developed as a result of inconsistent assessment judgements and ineffective assessments. It has been in place 1 year at my current school and has drastically improved the consistency and accuracy of assessment across our EYFS Department. The guide includes: Objectives for each curriculum area of the EYFS Curriculum. Examples of how children may demonstrate objectives. Guidance of what constitutes children emerging, developing or meeting expectation within an age-band. Notes: The guide begins at 16-26 Months to ELG. Some objectives have been added that our department felt should be included in the rounded assessment of a child. These are written in red so you can choose to disregard them if you wish to. This guide is not editable. Once purchased, if you would like an editable version, please let me know.

Interactive Behavior Contracts

Interactive Behavior Contracts

►What’s Included?◄ You will receive: -5 fill-in-the-blank worksheets for students to choose a replacement behavior and reward to work for (in PDF format) ►How to Use◄ A behavior contract is a simple behavior management tool which utilizes positive reinforcement. Simply put, a behavior contract pairs positive behaviors that you would like to see your student perform with rewards that he or she can obtain when they engage in the positive behavior. A few tips on implementation: The positive behavior listed on the behavior contract should take the place of a negative behavior being exhibited by your student, and be stated in positive, goal-oriented terms. For example, a replacement behavior for students who have difficulties talking out of turn could be “I will raise my hand when I need to say something” instead of “I will not talk out of turn.” A replacement behavior for a student who engages in aggressive behaviors towards his or her peers could be “I will keep my hands to myself” instead of “I will not hit or pinch others.” Although the teacher should decide which specific behaviors to select for the behavior contract, allowing your student to offer his or her input regarding the rewards established by the contract will make the student more likely to abide by the terms of the behavior contract. If students do not abide by the terms in the contract, it could be that they did not play a big enough role in the creation of it. Picking an individualized reinforcement that incentivizes your student to engage in appropriate behaviors is key. A reinforcement survey, which can be purchased for $1.00 in my shop, is often helpful to determine what is most reinforcing for each of your students. Allow your students to color a single picture or move objects along a path each time they engage in the predetermined appropriate behavior. Every child will react differently to reward systems. Some children need very little incentive to perform appropriate behaviors, while others will need rewards delivered at a very frequent rate in order to alter maladaptive behaviors. When the latter is the case, teachers can alter the contract terms to make the goals easier to obtain. By doing this, students can obtain their rewards at a faster, more frequent rate. Once they demonstrate that they can consistently engage in the appropriate behavior, teachers can gradually increase the complexity of the replacement behavior or reduce the rate of reward delivery. ► Terms of Use ◄ This artwork is copyrighted by Roots To Growth.

Reward Survey

Reward Survey

►What’s Included?◄ You will receive: -A 2 page reinforcement survey (in PDF format) -A scoring key for teachers including directions for interpreting answers (also in PDF format) ►How to Use◄ Have you noticed that some of your students do not respond to even the coolest, most unique classroom rewards? That’s because what’s reinforcing to some children may not always be reinforcing to others. This is what makes every child unique, and also why a reinforcement survey comes in handy. A reinforcement survey can provide valuable insight regarding what type of rewards and incentives your students prefer by allowing each child to give you direct feedback from their own perspective. These surveys are simple to administer and interpret, but the data it provides is invaluable. Ultimately, a reinforcement survey serves the purpose of assisting you when you need to know what motivates a student, what kind of rewards they prefer, and what they will be likely to work for! This reinforcement survey can be used with your entire class at the beginning of the year in order to get to know your students,’ as well as for the creation of a classwide incentive system. Reinforcement surveys can also be used with specific students who may be exhibiting problem behaviors to determine what a student wants to earn in order to increase appropriate classroom behaviors or develop a behavior plan. Simply have students complete the survey and then interpret their answers using the scoring key provided in this download. ► Terms of Use ◄ This artwork is copyrighted by Roots To Growth.
