Using the Framework: Actions to Support Teacher Identity, Motivation and Well-Being

Activity:

Use the framework to complete these tasks:

  • Review the contextualized framework that you developed with the most important teacher tentativeness and alternative qualifications issues affecting teachers and the quality of their support for children in your local context.

  • Identify actions that could be taken.

  • Review the example actions included above and discuss if and how any of these would be relevant in your context.

Questions for Reflection/Discussion:

In relation to Being a Teacher – Amidst Social and Economic Uncertainty, review the section entitled Supporting Teachers in Difficult Times on page 19 in the Healing Classrooms Guide for Teachers and Teacher Educators. How do current teacher training workshops reflect such content? How is it relevant for the teachers in your context? How could such content be integrated? In what ways would fellow IRC staff members also benefit from an opportunity to develop “self-care” and “peer care”? How could this content be adapted and integrated into staff development activities?
