Bloom’s Taxonomy flip charts are really cool and useful! I used mine a lot my first year to help me create many lesson plans and make sure I was building deeper thinking, etc.

As an English teacher, I would make sure you like and know the content you are teaching. If you know the content and texts on a deeper level, making higher level Blooms questions becomes easier once you get the hang of it. Basic recall, summary, descriptions are great for surface level but you won’t get analysis or application to the real world if you don’t already know that yourself. (Learned this the hard way as a 1st year teacher).

Read novels that you might want to teach so you can build effective units for the school year.

Don’t do so much professional development that you miss out on your break. You can also prepare for your lessons and see what skills you are lacking. Talk to colleagues— they know your population. YouTube has some PD opportunities as well.

I would speak to the teacher(s) in both the grade below and grade above for a couple of reasons-see what their expectations are and see what they see are usually areas of improvement needed, to help you develop your curriculum the first year. I would keep that communication open, too, so that you can talk with the grade level below about what you see as areas of improvement needed, and also check with the grade above to see if you have made any progress with what they have normally seen as areas that needed improvement. Good luck!

Look at reading levels from last year’s testing. Sometimes, the grade level the students are reading at can dictate your emphasis and the way you design your instruction.

Partners and future partners, if you made the salary you are currently making annually, and through increasing client fees and gaining efficiencies through technology, nobody worked more than 40 hours a week, would you be ok with that or would you think you are leaving money on the table and would want to get more and increase hours to 45-50? My main question is if we could achieve 40 hour weeks would you be satisfied or will you want to get hours up to what you’re used to?
