For many teachers, one of the most important (and often most difficult) skills to master is classroom management.
A recent report from Teachers Unite found that many educators believe that good classroom management goes beyond authoritarian discipline and punitive reactions to cultivating positive relationships with students and creating learning environments with an emphasis on social and emotional learning whereby behavioral standards are upheld. We 100% agree.
But how do we go about building positive relationships with students and setting clear behavioral standards? What day-to-day strategies are most effective for achieving these results?
Listen to educators and Yoga Ed. Trainers Chelsea Hylton, Harmony Turner, and Joan Nichols in this 30 minute roundtable led by Brynne Caleda as they share their most effective, classroom-tested teaching strategies to manage behavior and build positive relationships with their students.
Here’s what you’ll explore in this workshop…
- What is positive classroom management
- Specific teaching strategies that promote positive classroom management, including brain breaks and focused attention
- What the science says about the specific teaching strategies introduced
- Real life examples of strategies being utilized in different classroom environments across the United States
