Substitute Teacher Toolbox
CIMC's Substitute Teacher Toolbox is designed to provide administrators, resource centers, and substitute teachers with activities that can be used if a permanent teacher must be away from the classroom.
Substitute Teacher Toolbox is a collection of activities on a wide range of topics that would be appropriate for use in almost any classroom setting. These activities may help a substitute teacher who would not be able to carry out the original lesson plans because of a lack of technical expertise or because they are unfamiliar with the subject matter. Permanent classroom teachers may also use these exercises as a break from, or as a supplement to, regular lesson plans.
Substitute Teacher Toolbox covers the Teaching/Training pathway in the Education and Training cluster.
