I'm new here. Can't quite see if there's an official place to "join" this group, but I'd like to be part of your discussions, at least listen in! My first question is: What is your favorite source for professional development? OK, now I'll listen. Many thanks.

Yay, a preschool group :)

I'm an early childhood teacher at a progressive preschool / school in Australia and I have an interest in alternative education; nature play; outdoor learning environments and generally sharing ideas with other teachers. Its easy to be isolated in a classroom situation, so this is a great way to "meet" other preschool teachers. I blog at http;//progressiveearlychildhoodeducation.blogspot.com

Self-Regulation: Getting Our Students To Care

I think all educators can agree that we want our students to become better self-regulated learners. However, this is a daunting task for teachers. I've spent a great deal of time trying to teach my grade 6 students various self-regulation skills such as planning, goal-setting, self-monitoring, time management, self-control, and reflection, but in past years it hasn't quite "taken" the way I hoped it would. I talk about how important this skills are until I'm blue in the face and I usually get…See More

A Childhood Educator Is Becoming Commonplace In Teacher Training

School boards and individual teachers are seeking out new ways to improve and maintain their own learning process. Teachers with a passion for their career are routinely discovering innovative ways to brush up on skills, and to develop new methods for delivering information.
