SummaryVolunteers help the lesson to run smoothly by guiding students in working together, creating a pleasant atmosphere and going on excursions.
No class day is the same at the weekend school. That is one of the charms of the weekend school, but it also requires flexibility from those involved. The role of a supervisor therefore differs per Sunday. What is always asked of you: • Independently go through the day program. This program describes content, times, goals and details about the lesson day. • Participate in the preliminary discussion. At the start of the class day, the weekend school team goes through the day program with the guest teachers and supervisors. All roles are discussed, agreements are made and there is an opportunity to ask questions. • Fulfilling an exemplary role For example, when presenting a role play or assignment. But you also set an example by living up to how we would like everyone to treat each other. • Support in enforcing the rules. For the students you are one of the teachers during the class day. Address students from that role by complimenting good behavior and naming undesired behavior (whereby you also indicate which behavior you would like to see). • Motivate. Enthusiasm is always contagious. When you show interest in the students and the lesson content, the students will often quickly adopt your curious attitude. • Guiding a group of students with an assignment. We often work in groups. In that case, as a supervisor you help a group of students to carry out the assignment and to work well together. • Approach students as positively as possible. There is often a story behind a negative attitude of a student. Give them (heartfelt) compliments, start conversations with them and be open to their stories. • Be available during the break. Students like it when you join in with games or start a chat. You also help us by making sure that the students interact positively with each other. • Discuss the day (briefly) afterwards.
