The vital role of the teaching assistant in the PYP – PYP – Category 3

26th October 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 28th October 2018 @ 1:00 pm

Recommended for:

Teaching assistants in candidate and authorized PYP schools, and non-IB teaching assistants. The course is suitable for all teaching assistants, learning support assistants and others who support learning in all settings and at all stages.

As a teaching assistant (TA), how can you contribute to teaching and learning effectively? What are the characteristics of effective partnerships between teachers and TAs? TAs work alongside teachers, helping students to get the most out of the teaching and learning in the classroom. By helping teachers implement activities and make effective decisions to improve student outcomes, TAs can greatly enrich the educational experience of students. In this workshop, you will have many opportunities to explore, collaborate, communicate and reflect on how you play an important role in the classroom. In this role, you can provide a “friendly face” for many students and serve as a key connection between the student and the teacher.
