Dear <<First Name>>,
Fieldbook Project Going Strong !
The Fieldbook offers practices and principles for Teachers, Classrooms, and School Communites
Intentional Teaching Practice: The Fieldbook's Teaching Presence framework offers teachers a map for developing and sustaining an authentic, intentional teaching practice that engages students, supports learning outcomes, and improves their own experience of teaching. The five dimensions of Teaching Presence are: engaging the self-observer, being present, practicing respectful discipline, expanding emotional range, and teaching with compassion.
Practices and Principles for the Classroom: Practices and principles for the classroom foster learning readiness, improve communication skills, invite symbolic and creative expression, assist students with stress and anger management, support students to navigate transitions, and create more productive and meaningful learning environments. This integrated approach supports K-12 teachers to include these methodologies into their teaching of any content area.
Positive School Culture: Practices and principles foster positive and productive relationships between faculty members and support schools to develop and sustain meaningful vision statements, goals, and school improvement plans.
Please let us know if you'd like to assist with this project!
