One of the greatest challenges for districts across our state is the training and retention of new teachers. According to Harry K. Wong, 50 percent of teachers leave the teaching profession within the first three years of teaching feeling discouraged, overwhelmed, and abandoned.
The University of Mississippi Writing Project would like to help by offering a program designed especially for teachers with less than three years of experience. These four interactive sessions will address the following topics:
- Building Classroom Communities
- Lesson Planning
- Classroom Management
- Application of the Standards to Daily Practice
- Managing and Monitoring Student Achievement
