Are Your Substitutes Prepared for a Successful Day? Ours Are...
Kaufman, Scott Paul; Hunter, Donna
All individuals desiring employment as substitute teachers for the Oklahoma City Public Schools are required to attend a professional substitute teacher institute. Certified and noncertified applicants are eligible; retired teachers who have been employed within the previous 3 years are exempt. Curriculum and instruction for the institute, developed by certified staff development trainers, include such content topics as effective school research, expectations, research based effective instructional skills, positive classroom management, creative substituting skills, human relations, and continued professional growth. This handbook, designed for institute trainers, presents components of this training institute: objectives; expectations of the school district from substitute teachers; expectations of substitute teachers from the school district; a staff development rationale; the total substituting act--things that a substitute teacher needs to know in order to be successful; a checklist for planning an institute; an action plan stating commitment to the training of professional substitute teachers; facts about the Professional Substitute Teacher Institute; topics by the day for the institute; and a time allocation graph and an assessment graph. Two appendixes include "The ABC's of Substitute Teaching" and a "Substitute Survival Guide." (LL)
