AVOID THE MIDCAREER SLUMP

Many resources are lavished on the early years of a teacherís career for obvious reasons: to help beginning teachers find their way in a new environment and to lay groundwork that will keep them in the teaching profession for a lifetime.

But midcareer teachers are at a startling disadvantage. They often donít receive support and feedback to help them grow and mature at a critical time. At this stage, a certain fatigue may set in. Lessons once taught with excitement are now explained by rote. Evaluations from their schools may also fall short of the feedback teachers crave.

Addressing the problems particular to midcareer teachers, showing ways to refresh their teaching, and guiding them to a more purposeful presence in the classroom are the central concerns of this three-part professional development program:

  • How Can I Get Valuable Insight from Course Evaluations?

  • How Can I Teach Routine Courses with Energy and Enthusiasm?
    Reveals ways to counter the effects of teaching fatigue and infuse new life into the instruction of everyday courses.
