Hi All, looking for some advice,
I am a FS2 teacher at a British School in Dubai. We have 11 classes across FS1 and FS2 and our Head of Foundation Stage has asked me to run some weekly trainings for our TAs with a different focus each wee (first one being The Role of the TA, then Behaviour Management, then Curriculum, then observations-you get the idea).
The problem is I am having trouble knowing where to pitch the first one in particular as we have a real range of abilities, we have about half of the staff who are Philippino who are lovely but have no training (two stood and watched two children tying another child to a pole with a chain) and are not good at multitasking whilst we have a couple who have their level 4 and can do complete observations on Tapestry.
Just wondered if anyone had any suggestions for activities for the first session (The Role of the TA-expectations etc.) so that I don't end up talking down to anyone but so that its exciting and useful to all. Thanks in advance!!
