One of the more difficult aspects of teaching is managing a classroom. Effective teaching can only commence if the environment is conducive to learning. This also includes the instructor making a connection with each of his or her students. If each heart is unique, then its prescribed care should also be tailored to the individual. Classroom management is about creating an atmosphere where a student’s heart and mind can develop. For this session, the goal is to provide teachers with some practical tools and methodologies for managing their classrooms.
This is for both veteran teachers looking to fine tine their management skills and new teachers looking to build a firm foundation for their learning environment.
