Crisis management articles are a necessary part of professional development for teachers. It is necessary for them to prepared in the case that a crisis ensues. Not only should articles be required, classes should be required, too. It is unfortunate that teachers have this additional burden but it might save a life.
Yes, crisis management articles are a necessary part of professional development for teachers, because teachers do so much more than help students learn how to read and write. If a child is having a bad day because of a crisis, a teacher who knows what to do and say can be a big help to that child.
I do not believe crisis management articles are a necessary part of professional development for teachers. I think teachers would spend their time better trying to find new methods to try in the class room for education. Crisis management is usually something adept to business practices, not classrooms and teachers.
Crisis management, the fake and needless fad of the moment. No, teachers don't need crisis management articles for professional development. What teachers need to stay professional is a school administration that enforces strict discipline on students, classrooms that are not falling into disrepair, and parents who don't think their little idiots are angels.
