First Day, First Week Planning Model. Management for Effective Teaching.
Fairfax County Public Schools, VA. Dept. of Instructional Services.
This model was designed to help elementary school teachers to plan effectively for the first day and first week of school. It was developed by the Fairfax County (Virginia) School System as a part of their Management for Effective Teaching (MET) Project, which was planned and implemented to answer the need expressed by teachers, principals, and other educational personnel for resources to manage more effectively the school system's Program of Studies. Six areas are identified on the model as important considerations in planning: (1) routines; (2) climate; (3) physical environment; (4) diagnosis; (5) home communication; and (6) learning activities. A chart offers examples of two teacher's first day/first week planning ideas for each of these areas. (JD)
