CJEC is bringing together ALL the religious schools in the Greater Cincinnati area to bring all of our amazing teachers together for half a day of learning together and beginning the year in a big way.

New Teachers will have an opportunity to come together for the first session in "How to Be Ready for Day 1". In this session we will discuss the key things to a successful Day 1 ( and beyond!)

Oct 4th - Lesson Planning & Design

Good teaching begins with good lesson planning. Good lesson planning starts with knowing where you are trying to get to. What will students understand, know and be able to do by the end of the class. How will your lesson address the needs of different kinds of learners? This session will explore how to plan with these questions in mind, how to write detailed lessons that will empower you to teach well, and how to engage your students right from the start of class all the way through to the end.
