1 | How teachers control a classroom
When you see a teacher in complete control of their classroom, what’s their secret? Is it witchcraft? Did they just get lucky with the perfect group of kids? Here, you can learn about the big and little things that help maintain consistently good standards of behaviour, from clear setting clear expectations and guidelines to effective verbal and non-verbal communication.
3 | How to get your class back under control
There’s always that fear, particularly for new teachers, of ‘losing the class’. The panic that they won’t respect you, and that nothing you try will work. That you’re just not the right character to get bad behaviour under control. Here, Sue explains that with a collection of techniques, done consistently, anyone can manage behaviour effectively.
If you want to watch the full video with all of these segments in one go, you can find it here. And there are loads more of Sue Cowley’s behaviour management videos to be found on our YouTube Channel Tips for Teachers.
