节省时间

听我对安吉拉·沃森的采访( 成绩单):


 

缺乏时间是巨大的 problem for teachers everywhere. There’s just never enough time for teachers to do their 工作 well AND have a healthy, balanced life outside the classroom. For as long as I have been 工作ing to serve teachers and help you do your 工作 better, time was always the one 我无法解决的问题。我可以分享强大的教学策略,课堂管理技巧,改变游戏规则的技术工具,但是当涉及到真正的钉子时 时间紧缺,我空手而归。

到现在。

Now there is something 那 I truly believe is going to change teachers’ lives and give you back the time you so sorely need. It’s called the 40小时教师工作周俱乐部,已开发 由我的朋友安吉拉·沃森(Angela Watson)撰写,他是一位杰出的教育博客和顾问,可以在《教师基石》中找到。她创造了 一种系统的方法来帮助老师节省时间 off of their 工作 week and get a whole lot more balance in their lives.

The program, a year-long membership 那 提供每周的电子邮件提示和可下载的资源,旨在帮助教师更清楚地了解他们实际花了多少小时来完成与学校相关的任务,然后针对较小的,更合理的数字进行拍摄。对于某些人来说,这实际上可能是40个小时,但是对于其他许多人来说,这将明显比您少’已经在学校花钱了。设定此目标数字后,俱乐部会员每周都会应用新的策略,以使他们更接近自己的目标 目标,通过一个私人Facebook小组互相支持。

I’m so excited about the program and how well it’s 工作ing for teachers 那 I invited Angela to come onto the podcast and share some of the best tips she shares with club members, five really powerful ways you can save time as a teacher.

5个节省教师的时间

这些技巧是安吉拉·沃森(Angela Watson)’s “Big Five,” the principles for teacher productivity 那 form club members’ 余下时间的基础。

1) Eliminate 意外休息.
So often when we think we are 工作ing, we are 实际ly off-task: checking social media, letting our attention drift to a T.V., visiting with a co-worker who just stopped by for a minute. If we can become aware of these 意外休息 and cut way back on them—focusing on 工作ing when we are 工作ing—we will find ourselves with a lot more 实际 空闲时间。

2)弄清楚主事,然后先做。
It’s easy to cross the little things off our to-do lists: grade a class set of quizzes, reply to a parent e-mail about an assignment, update the class newsletter. But most people have 那 one task 那 hangs over them—it may be something difficult, time-consuming, boring, or so important we just want to avoid it. Angela advises teachers to decide every day what this task is, to think of it as the Main Thing—your biggest priority for the day, the thing you have been putting off—and get it done first, before ticking off all those smaller, easier tasks. By doing this, you give yourself a sense of satisfaction 那 can’不能通过完成简单的工作而获得。

3) Work ahead by batching and avoid multi-tasking unless the 工作 is mindless.
我们待办事项清单上的许多项目都是一整天都发生的,并且整天和一周内都开始执行,并与这些低效的总成中的其他义务混合在一起“multi-tasking.” Instead of completing tasks one by one—like going to the photocopier every day on an as-needed basis or checking e-mails eight to ten times a day—start doing tasks in larger, less-frequent batches. Get all your photocopying for the week done in one trip. Only check and respond to emails twice a day—but respond to ALL of them in 那 time. By doing more of the same thing all at once, we 实际ly free up more time for ourselves later.

4) Look for innovative ways to relax any standards 那 create unnecessary 工作.
Perfectionism seems to be a common trait for many teachers, and it is the thing 那 keeps us 工作ing hours longer than we need to, looking for 那 perfect resource, adjusting a document until it’恰到好处,完成我们的学生可以完成的任务…but not quite. To start shaving time off your 工作 week, take a good hard look for places where you can relax your 标准,拍摄“good enough,” and finish those tasks more quickly. Save 那 time for the tasks 那 truly deserve extra attention.

5)使用时间表在您的时间范围内创建界限。
真正的教学 can expand to fill up as much time as you let it. So schedule blocks of 工作 right into your calendar the same way you’d schedule appointments. Then, as best as you can, stick to 那 schedule. If you’ve decided to set aside two hours to plan lessons for the upcoming week, 工作 for two hours, then stop. Just knowing you have only blocked off a set period of time can help you 工作 more quickly and efficiently, and it can help raise your awareness of exactly how long each task takes. If you find 那 tasks regularly take longer than the allotted time, you may need to adjust your schedule…或回到项目#4…or item #1.

了解有关40小时教师工作周俱乐部的更多信息

I have seen the resources in this club and read the testimonies from the first wave of club members, and the results are impressive. Teachers are saying they no longer take 工作 home on the weekends, 那 they leave school at a reasonable hour, and 那 they are—for the first time in their teaching careers—finding time to give attention to their families, their health, their sleep, their friendships.

On top of 那, they are 实际ly enjoying teaching more.

  1. Here are two more, slightly underhand but they 工作:
    1:如果您必须执行年度报告或月度报告,请确定它们是已阅读还是已归档。我的同事过去常常将旧的寄给第二类。
    2.对于大多数请求,电子邮件不回答第一个。如果你不这样做’不会得到提醒,那么你就不会’不必做任何事情。

    • Howard, your suggestions both have merit; sometimes doing nothing (or doing the bare minimum) is the best course of action. I think some of us drive ourselves crazy trying to keep up with things 那 don’不一定需要立即采取行动。在其他情况下,我们不’t have to give tasks our very best. Taking 那 approach can conserve our time and energy for tasks where excellence really matters.

  2. 我的教学伙伴和我制作了单位所需的所有副本,因此当(不是如果)复印机损坏时,我们就赢了 ’争先恐后。我们每周选择一天留在放学后,计划下周的所有课程。在出发之前,我们为第二天早上布置了房间。我们现在很少放学后停留,而且我们再也不会在周末进来。真是太好了!

  3. 克莱尔 说:

    这些都是好东西,有用的,他们没有’解决了初中和高中教师问题的根源。我们应该少教些课。

    • Claire, I agree. Teachers in most countries are being asked to do way too much with far too little time. I think addressing 那 is a separate issue, one 那 requires political action in many cases. I’m grateful 那 there are people who devote their time to fighting for more reasonable 工作ing conditions for teachers. In the meantime, strategies like these can help to keep good people in the classroom.

  4. 克里斯汀 说:

    I noticed when looking into the 40 Hour Club 那 Angela is a K-8 instructional coach. Are the resources/strategies tailored to 那 group or would they equally be applicable to those of us who teach at the secondary level?

    • Hi 克里斯汀! Angela 实际ly does have quite a few middle and secondary members, and the nice thing about the club is 那 in the private 脸书 group, members can help each other 工作 out how to apply principles to their unique situations. The group is wonderfully supportive and offers all kinds of suggestions and resources 那 even go beyond what Angela herself provides.

    • 嗨,克里斯汀!一世’d说我们的会员中约有35-40%是中学老师。所有内容都适用于基本和辅助上下文。一世’ve done a lot of conferencing with secondary teachers as I built out the program to make sure I fully understand the unique needs of middle and high school teachers. I hope 那’s helpful to you in making your decision.

  5. 沃森计划会花钱吗?

    • 是的,它’s a year-long subscription, kind of like joining Weight Watchers or a similar type of club 那 provides resources and support for a significant life change. You can learn more about the payment options if you click on the links to the program above (clicking over doesn’不要承诺您进行任何购买!)。

  6. 阿曼达 说:

    我认为目的是好的,新的技巧也很棒,但是我认为这5个技巧(尤其是#1)可以最大程度地减少工作量。作为一名特殊教育老师,我希望减少与同事的对话,但这对我的工作和我的学生而言至关重要’ success.

    • 嗨,阿曼达。我认为“unintentional breaks”每个老师的定义可能不同。如果您认为它对您的工作至关重要,那么它’并不是真正的休息。即使是非特殊教育的老师’与同事建立关系对于学生的成功,更好的协作和总体健康感非常重要。重点是要知道你什么时候’这样做的目的是什么:如果老师每天6:00下班,但是放学后大约一个小时花时间与同事们一起拍微风,那么那个人说他们可以’直到6点才下班—他们需要认识到一些“work” time isn’t really 工作. In your case, you’除了拍摄微风以外,还有很多其他事情要做,’这是一个无意间的休息。对您来说,查看诸如个人电子邮件,检查社交媒体或其他与工作无关的干扰之类的东西可能更值得,而这些干扰可能会在您没有意识到的情况下浪费时间。

  7. 瓦内萨·乔丹奴(Vanesa Giordano) 说:

    Hello, I´m Vanesa and I 工作 as a elementary teacher in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I read the 文章 and I found it very original caus in my country teachers 工作 a lot outside the schools. I bring 工作 to my home every day and some weekends also. Im doing a second career on the university so 那 extra 工作 at home is consuming a lot of my studyng time. So I would like to know if there is some kind of “international club”在全球范围内使用Teather,或者您是否知道南美一些类似的俱乐部。

    • 你好凡妮莎,
      目前,该俱乐部基于美国学校系统。一世’确保许多生产力策略将适用于世界各地的教师,但是在那里’s no guarantee of 那. After this next round of subscribers 工作s through the program, there may be more testimonials from international teachers who have joined. I’m not aware of a different club 那 serves international teachers, but if you learn of something, come back and tell us here!

  8. 米妮 说:

    当我赢了’加入俱乐部,这绝对是要努力的方向。与他人进行对话,以便明智地利用我们的时间,并在可能的情况下互相帮助。自从我’m single with no children, I 实际ly enjoy staying late or coming to campus on non- 工作ing days in order to prep for as long as I need. For parents, first year BTSA teachers, grad school professionals, and married colleagues, this could help; however, all teachers are capable of effectively multitasking. Thanks for the dialogue!

  9. I’完全与您一起,真正了解我们在学校的时间。每分钟都是宝贵的,我的个人座右铭是:“首先生活,然后教书。”

    我可以’t do 那 if I’m mixing the two, like staying at the school chatting with friends at the copy machine but not really getting any 工作 done and then going home and 和我的家人在一起,但仍在另一间房间给纸评分…

    As much as possible, we have to try to leave 工作 at 工作 because guess what! It’第二天仍然会在那里!

    • 我可以和你有关系’re saying, 劳拉, “和我的家人在一起,但仍在另一间房间给纸评分…” I do so much of 那 kind of multitasking, and it’非常令人不满意,更不用说无用了。对此有了更多的认识,并为我们的时代设定清晰的界限确实可以有所帮助。

    • 凯特琳 说:

      劳伦,我爱你的座右铭。我的观点是:“使教学适应我的生活,而不使我的生活适应教学”。

  10. 珍妮佛 说:

    I’d love to participate in this but it starts during our holidays in Australia. Would 那 matter?

    • The club is set up for a U.S. school calendar, with topics 那 line up with what teachers on those calendars are doing at certain times of year. For example, summer content focuses on setting up classrooms for an efficient school year. Australian teachers can still get a lot out of club content, but you may have to change when you apply the strategies, and put some things off until later in the year. Angela has considered making an Australian version of the club, but she’还没到那儿。我觉得你’仍然会看到重大变化,但是您有时可能会感到沮丧。

  11. 很棒的文章– teachers are overworked for sure, but we bring a lot of it on ourselves. A method 那 I find invaluable in my doctorate studies, which can be applied to our planning time or whatever, is the Pomodoro method. Basically, 工作 for 25 minutes nonstop, take a short break, repeat as needed. Really cuts down the temptation to hop on 脸书 at random times.

  12. 很棒的帖子!
    Teachers can save so much time by creating lesson plans and evaluations 那 don’t put a huge burden on them (you talk about this a little bit in point #4). For example, does an easily-graded multiple-choice quiz evaluate students with about the same efficiency as something more creative, but more complicated? We teachers love to overthink things and try out new stuff, but 那 leads to lots of long hours.
    我实际上在自己的博客上写了关于同一主题的文章,并提出了许多相同的观点: http://tinyurl.com/hjusddr

  13. 芭芭拉·帕西奥提(Barbara Paciotti) 说:

    第二是我的失败–这一直是我一直推迟到绝对要完成的时候,而我一直很痛苦,因为我的拖延使它变得比以前更大了。有一天,我得到了一些明智的建议:“首先,做最讨厌的事情。” Now, as I look over my daily tasks I figure out which one I most want NOT to do, then tackle 那 one first–也许不是全部,但至少要足够入门才能有所作为。它’s hard to describe what a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction I derive from getting 那 one thing out of the way. It makes the whole rest of the day seem rosy and hopeful!

    • 艾米·赖特 说:

      The thing with procrastination is 那 so many things are dependent upon other things and/or other people. That’是我的许多待办事项中令人沮丧的部分!

  14. 科里·斯托塔尔 说:

    So excited 那 this discussion is happening. You are all doing great things, and I’d爱成为它的一部分!

  15. 艾米 说:

    How do we now 那 this is a real deal and not a scam?

  16. 珍妮 说:

    I’ve已经完善了本文所述的5,所以我怀疑每周40个小时的队列能否教给我任何东西。但是,我想加入。一世’m desperate!

    • 詹妮(Jennee),加入的绝大多数人都看到了出色的成绩。该俱乐部将于6月再次开放,因此您应该开始看到更多信息,以帮助您做出决定。如果你没有’t yet signed up for the mailing list, do 那 (in the box at the end of the post) so 我可以 let you know when it opens again in June!

  17. 约翰 说:

    这是一篇好文章。我基本上已经在3年内换了专业。如果一切按计划进行,那么我将在另外2 1/2年内离开。我想主修CGI,这值得吗?

  18. A friend of mine is studying to become a teacher, so thanks for sharing this. I like your point about shaving time off your 工作 week by relaxing your standards a bit. I know a lot of teachers 那 take their jobs too seriously and end up with no free time, so this sounds like a good way to prevent this.

  19. 伊冯娜M 说:

    嗨,珍妮弗,非常感谢您的播客!!我是罗马尼亚的一位老师,在我开始教书的4年级时,几天前发现您的播客系列确实是对我的礼物,希望对我在学校的孩子们来说是一件礼物。一世’在上学或晚上跑步的路上收听您的播客,这让我感到鼓舞和自信。特别是这个播客让我感到高兴,因为在贫困学校任教三年后,我’我对教学仍然很热情,但是我上学年几乎在医院里就读完了,离婚了。一世’我在开玩笑!一点:))我’我在及时完成工作和安排优先事项方面付出了很多努力。对于专业和个人项目,我有这么多想法和很多领域需要改进,而时间却很少!所以我’寻找一些可以大大提高我的工作影响力和效率的相关想法。我可以’等着明天开始申请这5条建议中的至少2条,我’我非常有信心他们会为我工作。再次感谢您,并祝您工作顺利!

    • 听起来像是您的餐盘真的很饱,伊冯娜— I’m excited you found a couple of things in this post 那 you can try right away to help you out. Teaching is hard 工作 and it’感到不知所措,努力与所有人见面时会更加困难’的需求,包括您自己的需求。如果你没有’尚未,您可能想看看詹恩’s 教师健康 board on Pinterest的. There are lots of resources there, 那 may be of interest. Take Care!

  20. 达娜 说:

    刚刚找到了整个网站–我的整个教学生涯在哪里?
    感谢所有提示和技巧。我教书,并且是助理校长,并且正在为第二位硕士上课。它’很多。弄清楚首先需要做什么,然后从头到尾完成–that’我最大的事也没有电视“in the background” when I get 工作 done. I get distracted more than I think I will and tasks take longer than they should. I also make all the copies I will need for the coming week on Friday–剪裁它们,并在哪一天张贴在每个堆栈上并对其评分’s for. I have a basket for each grade on my windowsill. I often get pulled out of my classroom to deal with admin stuff so 那 way if another teacher has to step in to cover me the period doesn’不能变成自习室或疯狂的争夺战-这可能不完全是我本来应该上的课’不是完全的损失。
