Are you thinking of doing things differently this year?

Any new strategies or instructional practices you want to try out in your classroom?

Well, we have one for you.

In this webinar Sr. Asma will make a case regarding the concept of an “invisible teacher” as a way to managing classrooms Islamically.

She will provide compelling arguments on using the “invisible teacher” mindset to managing one’s classroom and also present practical strategies on day-to-day management.

Beginning with tips for the first days of school, this webinar will give you, the educator, a leg up on having a successful blueprint of expectations and procedures for the upcoming year.

Webinar attendees will be able to:

  • identify the best practices for managing one’s classroom in the 21st Century;
  • critically reflect on one’s own classroom management techniques;
  • critically analyze strategies in creating expectations and procedures to ensure a vibrant and stimulating learning environment for the students;
  • appreciate and affirm the importance of managing classrooms with the mindset of an “invisible teacher”
