Are you constantly having to adapt to curriculum changes?
Sometimes a new curriculum comes at us with little to no warning and we feel like we’re expected to overhaul absolutely everything to do it the new way.
In this episode, I’m talking about how to handle curriculum changes and what you can do to reduce some of the stress that they cause.
It’s important to remember that changes are made for a reason. It doesn’t make sense to keep an outdated curriculum that doesn’t reflect the world we live in today, so changes can be a really good thing.
If you’re facing a curriculum change, I want you to know that often, it’s not as big of a deal as it seems. By the end of this episode, you’ll have the tools you need to handle it calmly and confidently.
In Today’s Episode We Discuss:
- How to stay calm when a new curriculum change is announced
- Why a new curriculum doesn’t mean you need to start from scratch
- The advantages of buying resources from Ontario-based teachers
- Examples of curriculum changes we’ve seen in the past
- How to get ideas for your classroom
- The importance of making research-based changes
- Being open to change
- Making it work for you and your students
- Why you should read from the original source
I hope this episode leaves you feeling better prepared to face curriculum changes whether they’re happening now or in the future. Please don’t feel like you need to start from scratch. A few changes here and there are all it takes to get your classroom up to date!
