THOUGHTS FOR PRE-SERVICE AND BEGINNING TEACHERS
When working with students it is important for school leaders and teachers to educate an awareness of time. When workshops are being held, when students are involve in project undertaking, make participants aware of time left on a graduated basis. Don’t leave it until the last minute before springing the need for quick wind-up and pack-up upon them. This approach panics participants be they students or staff members, sending them into a flurry and leaving the activity with them as a slight (or substantial) sour taste in the mouth.
When managing time as a facilitator or teacher, be empathetic not vitriolic.
