2011 Municipal Elections

I am so impressed with the web site of the IEC which covered the local government elections I followed the results by looking at the Results map and the Reports. I was able to find the results per ward, percentage Voter Turnout, Spoilt Votes, etc. I was able to download Excel and pdf files with up-to-date results as they came in. Well done to their web design team!

Best practices

What are best practices for a CAT teacher? I identified a few areas that I think are important such as Classroom management, Time management, Network management, Teaching and Principal management. Are there other areas of importance and what should one focus on in these different areas?
Feel free to contribute on this blog as yourself or anonymously. Thank you. I need this information for a group I am working with.

Time management

Time management is essential to a CAT teacher so a calendar is needed. Letting certain people know your appointments is useful, as well as synchronising two or three different people's calendars. Alerts to remind one of appointments is useful. And then getting many people to agree on a suitable date for a meeting is useful. This pdf file may help.
And today being Mother's Day these ideas may be useful to her.
