Ways to be better at Outcome Management
s a relief teacher you are not directly accountable for the long term
success of your students. You are probably not going to be there
long enough anyway.
But, do you know how kids suddenly become motivated if they know
something is going to be tested or assessed?
Well, they do the opposite for some relief teachers because they know
that they are NOT going to be assessed or tested. What they learn on
your watch will probably be retaught by their regular teacher.
So what is the motivation for them to learn?
Yeah! I know what you are saying. Intrinsic value of learni… BLAH!
You need to stamp your authority (not literally) and make your students
understand that you are going to value add to their day and you WILL be
making certain they understand, achieve, improve, recognise success
during your watch.
