About

๐Ÿค” Whatโ€™s going on here?

Iโ€™m working on a book? course? not sure about teaching in bootcamps, especially geared toward first-time teachers coming from the professional world, and the people who manage them. Itโ€™s pretty rough early stages, but in the spirit of ๐Ÿ“– Shitty First Drafts, Iโ€™m gonna try to share some of the process as I work on this. Maybe someone out there in the universe will find this interesting. ๐Ÿคž

๐Ÿ–Š Work in progress

For now, you can follow along on the ๐Ÿ“ฆ Releases page for the project. For now Iโ€™ll be publishing release notes and new versions there. If anyone has any idea how to get the content from there to show up on this website, let me know!

  • ๐Ÿ“ Helping Teachers Improve

    This release includes notes on a new chapter about helping teachers improve their practice over time. I found the draft of this easy to write, since I had a lot of thoughts on my mind about this, especially from my experiences working with and coaching bootcamp teachers in New York. So a lot of those new notes are essentially a combination of how I was coached, how I approached the job, and what over time Iโ€™ve found to be most valuable.

  • ๐Ÿ“ Differentiation, activities, and notes

    Smaller set of changes this time, hoping I can get down the workflow of doing these kind of releases as I go.

  • ๐Ÿ“ Initial Outline

    So far, this is a combination of initial thoughts, outlines, and rough notes for about half of what Iโ€™m planning to cover. I realized along the way that I have a more developed sense of checking for understanding in class than I originally thought. I feel like this is gonna be an interesting ride.
