Limited Capacity seats available

Participants will be introduced to the struggles and pitfalls, and ultimately, the successes of managing a classroom of students. They will learn the importance and necessity of creating definitive structure to your classroom and approach to management at the onset of the school year. We will discuss the importance of consistency with procedures, expectations and the delivery of consequences, both positive and negative. We will discuss various situations that could occur in the classroom and how to respond, or set up procedures to ensure that a particular negative behavior does not occur again, or a positive behavior is reinforced. We will also discuss arranging the room in a way conducive to effective management; and identifying and implementing rules and operating procedures that a teacher can adapt and cater to their preferred style of management. The presenter’s experience and knowledge will serve, not as a declaration of a perceived expertise, but as a reference point and resource that young teachers can draw upon when developing their ability to manage a classroom.
