Teaching in the Savior’s Way encourages us to include practice as part of teacher council meetings. What should we be practicing, and how do we do it?

    The purpose of the “Practice” portion of teacher council meetings is to give teachers the opportunity to apply what they have discussed and receive feedback from each other. When teachers do this, their teaching is far more likely to improve. For example, if the teachers have discussed how to prepare to teach, they could take a few minutes during the meeting to prepare sample plans for their upcoming lessons, share them with each other, and give feedback (see Teaching in the Savior’s Way, 19). Or if they have learned about asking inspired questions, they might spend some time thinking of questions they could use in class and getting each other’s advice on their questions (see Teaching in the Savior’s Way, 32). Other ideas for practicing can be found throughout Teaching in the Savior’s Way.
