Team Teaching is a great way to get real world experience in a lesson as a new instructor with the assistance and support of an experienced instructor by your side.
In your New Hire Training, the ideal First Time Experience with common situations and logical next-steps is portrayed but how often times the real world so cut and dry. This is your opportunity to try your newfound skills, find a hiccup in your progression or learn what to do in a particular situation. A trainer or teammate is there for guidance and support. You’re in charge, but know you have someone there for help if you need it.
Trainer or Teammates (experienced instructors) will be your assistant as needed.
Lesson Summary for each Team Teach
After the end of your Team Teach please complete a Team Teach Summary Form. This is a reflection of your experience and will help anchor your knowledge and new skills. It is also record of your completion of this step.
If you don’t feel quite ready to be the lead on your Team Teach lesson, that’s okay! We want you to feel confident and prepared in your job. If you are at all hesitant, ask to be a lesson “helper”, then do a Team Teach as described above.
