The Weekend Recap


In the past week,  my aim was to write a content rich selection of topics with some practical advice for new and experienced teachers that they can use straight out of the box.

Three main posts account for most of the 10,000 words or so that have been written on the blog this week. Don’t be put off by the word count: the strategies are rich in illustration and can be used by teachers to enhance their teaching experience.

Share these ideas with your colleagues and use them for discussion items in meetings and training days. Here you go…

The three content rich posts this week centre on teacher practice…

Redirection as an Effective Behaviour Management Strategy for Teachers

Brilliant Preparation for Parent-Teacher Interviews

26 Unbreakable Rules for Student Teachers on Practicum Placements

I also wanted to foreshadow a Book Review I’m planning on writing by Fr Garesche S.J. The Catholic Book of Character & Success. This is such a treasure of Catholic Character formation, that I wanted to share the contents up front. The chapter list is informative in itself.

The post is here: 32 ways to build a Catholic Character in your students

And we finished the week with a look at a book which is close to my heart. Written by another Jesuit, Fr. Anthony J. Paone, S.J., this book, My Daily Bread, is one in a series produced by Confraternity of The Precious Blood.

It is a classic spiritual manual that… well read the post, and you’ll see! Book Review: My Daily Bread

I hope the variety of posts this week, has provided something for everyone. If you have a particular request for an article on a specific area of practice, let me know and I’ll consider it for a future post.

As always, it’s the weekend! Take some time to recharge your batteries, reflect on your week, and take a few moments to connect with your favourite spiritual book and come back Monday refreshed and ready to go.

God bless.
