Novice To Experienced To Expert
NOVICES EXPERTS Begin with the end in mind. Know when and how to supplement a lesson. Teach in small groups whenever possible. View discipline as instructional and not punitive. • Are in survival mode most of the time. • Depend on worksheets or pre-programmed materials. • Do a lot of whole group instruction. • See discipline as punitive rather than instructional.
NOVICES EXPERTS Can handle emergencies with calmness and speed. Can describe a student’s progress giving measurements and precise details. Seek out critique and are open to other ideas. See themselves as constantly learning about their teaching. • Have difficulty handling emergency situations. • Describe a student’s progress in general, rather than specific terms. • Get frustrated by criticism and suggestions for improvement. • Are afraid of admitting when they don’t know something.
