The opportunity for teachers to take control of their professional growth is at hand! This workbook was written by a current classroom teacher who knows the difference between useful, engaging professional development and insulting, interminable inservices. It contains twenty intriguing, interactive activities created to complement your reading experience of The Firm, Fair, Fascinating Facilitator and for you to evolve into a successful, satisfied Four F’s teacher.
These invaluable exercises are ready to go for a complete series of individualized, small group, or whole staff professional development options. Designed for teachers of all subjects and at all phases of their careers, you will find yourself often returning to these activities whenever you need to self-reflect, self-evaluate, or shore up your classroom confidence.
Through the discussion guides, you will also have several spirited, searching conversations, either with your colleagues or within the privacy of your own thoughts, which will challenge and assist you in refining and articulating your personal opinions about a wide range of educational issues. Critical thinking, introspection, and empowerment are at the core of this workbook’s goals.
