Agenda: Teaching Routine Book Launch Book Synopsis: My Teaching Routine” is a teaching framework based on Dr. Mark Martin’s two decades personal experience as an advanced skilled classroom teacher. The framework emphasizes the importance of reflective-metacognition, or considering one’s own thoughts and processes, in teaching. The book encourages readers to take ownership of their own teaching routines and to always reflect on their practice. The book is intended to be flexible and can be read in any order. It aims to take you out of your comfort zone, to constantly review your teaching style, and as a teacher, to challenge you to ask a series of questions. The ‘Teaching Routine’ takes the teachers and learners through different stages of a lesson setting up activities or scenarios in order for learners to maximize their learning. The learning outcome of the ‘Teaching Routine’ is to help teachers create excellent learning environments and build genuine connections with learners.
