Help for New Educators

by eatsbooks on Jan 15, 2009

Knowing too much about a subject can be a double edged sword. For those of us coming to teaching through alternate route certification, Mc Tighe offers an enjoyable method of looking at the subject, He suggests identifying a few "essential truths" for each topic then constructing lessons backwards from there. This helped me to temper my desire to teach everything at once. Try it, it works!
