150+ Tips for New Teachers

One of the best things about being a teacher is the support that you can often find from colleagues in your own building and, increasingly, through online professional groups. That collegiality can be a huge asset to teachers who are new to the profession. That's why five years ago I started to collect and publish tips from veteran teachers for new teachers. That collection now contains more than 150 tips for new teachers. The collection is displayed in the slides embedded below.

If you have a tip of your own that you want included in the slides above, please add it to the following Google Form.

Crowdsourcing Advice for New Teachers

Every year new teachers join our profession not knowing what they don't know. To help new teachers, five years ago I crowdsourced advice for new teachers. It's time to update that list of tips for new teachers. I put together this simple form for veteran teachers to submit their best advice for new teachers. If you have been teaching for five or more years, please take a moment to complete the form. Next week I'll publish the advice in a slideshow format with credit to each contributor. There is a place in the form to include a link to your Twitter profile and or blog.

Hip Hughes History Presents Ten Classroom Management Tips

Keith Hughes, teacher and producer of the popular Hip Hughes History series of videos, recently released a good video for new teachers. Ten Solutions for Misbehavior offers practical advice for new teachers. My favorite tip, and one that I have given myself, is to maintain a few broad rules rather than making rules for every little thing in your classroom. New teachers, this video is for you.

My addition to this list comes from the first principal that I worked under, "don't openly engage in power struggles with students."

I've made the slide deck public for anyone who has a Google Account to edit. Please make a copy and add your own tips if you feel inclined to do so.
