I just saw a video on â€œFish!â€. This great video for motivating teacher covers four points:
- Play: Make it fun. When you work with teachers, you can actually have fun by finding millions of ways to play and make professional development fun.
- Make it Their Day: Teachers deal with students; professional developers deal with teachers and administrators and maybe even students. Include them in the direction of how they learn and teach.
- Be There: Focus on what they want and need. Make it relevant to their needs.
- Choose Your Attitude: You can start the day with the possibilities of this day being the best day or not. Itâ€™s up to you.
Think about using this video with your teachers as a great way to engage and hook them. You can order the â€œFishâ€ kit with the book, workbook, facilitatorâ€™s guide, video and even a fish to throw. Call 1-800-328-3789 or visit Fish!
