The long and the short, teachers have a number of things we do when we are teaching and sometimes it’s hard to keep in mind the things that we do that allow for the greatest outcomes in learning. You have a LOT of instructional strategies that you use. By building a “handbook”, either digitally or physically, you can share the instructional strategies that you use with your families. By having such a handbook, you can also identify and build similar vocabulary and instructional processes that all staff can share.

This learning opportunity is being subsidized through funding from Alberta Education.
