Dialogue with yourself through a teaching log

The process of teaching extends far beyond the classroom, and invariably requires the teacher to do much soul searching and exploration of their own responses, ideas and areas of improvement.

This is one of the areas where keeping a teaching log can be incredible helpful, allowing you to keep track of all the ways you can make your own teaching skills more effective and impactful.

Jot down any areas where you felt students were truly engaged, and areas where they were not. Reflect on each day of teaching and the events which took place.

Not only will this practice yield positive results for your students, but for you as a teacher. Teaching is a hectic yet rewarding job, but there are great benefits to taking a few minutes each day to jot down the most significant events which have taken place.

You can then use this inner monologue to shape each new teaching day.
