Teachers Today Must Wear Many Hats!

Professional and subject knowledge has long been part of the teacher education curriculum. However, skill training in the areas of managing, acting, developing and selling appears to have been overlooked in most programs.

Research has shown that some of our best teachers are skilled MANAGERS! Clearly, techniques for planning, coordinating, commanding, controlling, organizing, guiding, coaching and facilitating are managing skills that every teacher needs to have.

Managing for Teachers will contribute to the professional development of both new and experienced teachers by providing training in the managing skills that are desired.

Complete Teacher Handbooks

To help meet the needs of both new and experienced teachers, we now offer a series of training handbooks.  These include:

Managing for Teachers
Acting for Teachers
Developing for Teachers
Selling for Teachers

Skill acquisition for each of the above-mentioned titles is performance-based and evaluation is criterion-referenced. Both teachers and teacher wannabes will benefit from the use of these very practical, self-study materials. Together with professional and subject knowledge instruction, these titles should help to provide a more realistic approach for delivering practical training in the complete praxis of teaching.
