Topic of the Day

Bring a practical question about teaching for your colleagues to answer or discuss. Guide a discussion of this question for 10 or 15 minutes.

Possible areas of interest include:


Most topics selected will receive full credit.

A small number of points may be deducted for vague or general questions -- the objective is to address a specific issue such as "What do I do if all of my students fail the unit test?" More general questions such as "Are parent teacher conferences useful?" are more appropriately addressed in the teaching theory segment of the course, although such questions may be raised and responded to during the discussion.

A large number of points may be deducted if the person assigned to contribute the topic of the day is tardy or absent.
