      Is your goal to provide an exemplar of an effective classroom management plan or do you want staff to review their own and revise them? If you are providing an exemplar, it may be fun to role play as you present your expectations using Universal Design for Learning. Staff could have the choice to read your plan, watch a Powerpoint, or listen to a lecture... then you could have them respond to your plan in discussion form, informative writing, creative writing, etc... If you want to have more of a workshop, you could provide teachers with templates, exemplars, etc.. and allow rich discussions to occur as you walk around and provide mastery oriented feedback.

        THANK YOU Katie. I really like your idea of responding to expectations with dialogue and writing.

        I am a 13 year science teacher, and am now working on a PA K-12 admin cert. As an intern experience, I am leading a 1 hour session at our district's new teacher induction days.

        This is such a broad topic, with so many important ideas. This has resulted with me going all over the place. I really want to stress the following ideas: maximizing instructional time, appealing to diverse learning needs and styles, retaining student engagement, and designing lessons which stress the critical elements of an effective lesson plan. All require an explicit effort which I want them to keep in mind. Am I straying from the topic?
