How many pages?

Clearly, if you're looking for TEN top tricks to tackle a teacher's time management torment!!!, you're on the wrong website. Want a three slide PowerPoint presentation to show NQTs just the important points? Sorry, we have to disappoint you again. TM4T takes time management seriously, and it undervalues our stressed colleagues to suggest that a quick motivational slideshow will sort them out - this stuff may not be rocket science, but for most of us it is NOT easy, and time management is a big messy topic.

This is a 400-page website which tries to tackle every aspect of the topic, and we realise that we haven't got the navigation right yet. Here's a quick summary to find your way around.

  • Look at the 'Popular Pages' section on the Home Page. Statistically, this is your best bet.

  • Stress Management has its own section - this is under development, but most of the content is there.

  • If you're interested in the concepts and principles of time management (as they apply to teachers), you probably want the section called TM4T Background. This section is pretty theoretical, not always specific to teaching, and is - for many teachers - background reading. If you're really new to time management, you want the section called 'Time Management basics'
  • If you want specific information and advice on what to do in specific situations and how how tackle specific tasks, then you probably want the section called Techniques. We look at each technique individually, without much consideration of when to use them, or how they interrelate.  This part of the website is broken down to look at what you should do it, when, where, and who (in the sense of which-mindset-you-should-deploy)      
  • If you're after practical methods which you can apply, or if you want to follow the TM4T system as a whole, then the section called Step-by-Step is where you look.
  • The Lifestyle section is a little bit different to the other three, as it steps outside the boundaries of 'non-teaching time' and addresses, well... 'life'. It therefore stands apart from the other three sections, which are copiously cross-referenced (theory vs techniques vs methods). The Lifestyle section contains advice and resources to address Stress
