A few years back, my sister began teaching (without being fully trained as a teacher) band at the middle school level. Her schooling had been in music and she had received a doctorate in music, but had not had the formal training that most of us get through student teaching and other practicum experiences.
Needless to say, her first years were rough. Through many late night conversations and countless boxes of tissues, we developed a Daily 5 concept that she was able to do in her classroom.
I hope this format can help some of the teachers out there who are not in traditional classrooms, but are looking for ways to meet with their students on a daily basis to provide them more one on one feedback.
