Day 325 - Tribes training
Spent a very enjoyable and satisfying first day of a 4 day training course - Tribes. This is an American based course designed to teach teachers how to use various strategies in the classroom to create a more student centred and energised atmosphere. We were taken through a variety of activities as if we were the students - getting to know each other, being innovative and assertive in a supportive and non threatening environment. There were 18 of us - most from my own school and it was a great opportunity to develop a closer relationship with these folk. I am looking forward to tomorrow's session.
