The classroom management for the occasional teacher workshop series includes a variety of strategies and activities that deal with issues critical to occasional teachers and their work, both as LTO teachers and other specific assignments such as special education, core French, and daily work. The program has expanded its format to a two-part series with a greater emphasis on reflective practice and teacher professional judgment.

The workshop series provides occasional teacher locals an opportunity to access effective classroom management strategies based on the ETFO resource – I am the Teacher: Effective Classroom Management for the Occasional Teacher. Teachers receive practical classroom-tested strategies as well as networking opportunities with other occasional teachers. 

The goals of the series are to:

  • Assist in the development of predictable classroom routines;

  • Determine how to empower students through self-discipline and responsibility;

  • Explore effective classroom management strategies; and

  • Review the correlation between instructional practice and classroom management.

Participants will engage in dynamic workshop training that will highlight the strategies introduced in the book in relation to their practice. Each participant will receive a copy of the resource: I am the Teacher: Effective Classroom Management for the Occasional Teacher. 




Book Details: Experienced practitioners show you how to establish an effective presence in the classroom and school, connect appropriately with students, and establish routines and procedures.This resource for occasional teachers outlines student expectations, classroom and behavior management techniques, and useful instructional practices.
