Just curious if your school has this and what goes on? It's my first year teaching and it's at a private school. I ST at a public, so the curriculum is totally different. Literacy is taught using a basal (sp) reader and there is no leveled library like in public school. Math is different too.The principal did not go over the curriculum during the interview but did let me take home all the teacher manuels. I planned on reviewing them all this month and writing lessons. Is it a good idea to prepare all my lessons for the first 2 weeks or so now? Will curriculum, how it should be taught, etc. be discussed during the orientation you think?
