REVIEW
Teachers on Target is a great site for teachers or administrators looking to hone their skills. The content is grouped into four categories: Professional Development Activities, Classroom Activities, Activities for Administrators, and Collegial Circles. Teachers will find professional development activities on a wide range of topics including classroom management, discipline, planning, knowledge building, professional strengths and others. Each topic includes a collection of activities that teachers can use in a variety of ways to improve teaching competence, build collegiality, and better understand the art of teaching. Classroom activities include a host of strategies that can be used in any classroom to keep students engaged in learning. Teachers also are encouraged to contribute their own ideas. Administrators will find a list of self-directed exercises, which can be incorporated into their daily routines, that will help them become stronger leaders. Included in the materials is a seven-step process for implementing collegial circles that will develop and encourage those ever important professional connections that provide support for teachers in the workplace.
