No Teacher Left Behind
On Friday, October 22, 2010 while the students went home at 12:30 the teachers attended a half day No Teacher Left Behind training developed by Bryan Fiese, a dynamic speaker with a background in education, training and management from Dripping Springs, TX. In the second of a four part series, he spoke on the importance of keeping up with and captivating the “Generation Next” in the classroom and how to make it happen. The No Teacher Left Behind (NTLB) training provided GISD educators with the tools to empower this new generation of students. Visit the site HERE.
NTLB provided leadership skills and strategies needed to facilitate learning in the classroom rather than the traditional methods used by many. Lastly, the teachers learned how to motivate and engage their students in the classroom, provide tactful discipline, and ways to stay motivated themselves. This is all done through knowledge of differentiated learning plans, understanding brain function, verbal patterns, and harnessing personality types. The teachers came away with detailed approaches to use with their students on a daily basis. Part III is scheduled for January 13, 2011. Check it out on Facebook.
