An ideal journal for personal growth, group study, or as a gift for colleagues!
The art of skillful reflection can enhance teaching practice by providing opportunities to examine your own perspective, attitude, strengths, and abilities as well as personal challenges or limitations.
This reflective journal for new and veteran teachers can be used as a standalone professional development resource or in workshops and book study groups as a companion to Anita Moultrie Turner's book Recipe for Great Teaching. Each chapter includes quotations, writing prompts, and "savory morsels" of educational wisdom. Written in a light-hearted style, this journal's menu covers topics such as:
- Classroom environment, management, and discipline
- Self-esteem and self-respect
- Organizational skills
- Real-life skills
Spice up your classroom and rejuvenate your teaching through reflection and professional growth!
