Do you want to take a course on Classroom Management but you are scared of having your professional training in English? This course is for you! You will take a language course of one week before training on Classroom Management!
As a participant, in the first week, you will attend 20 hours of morning sessions of our partner Language School in a class composed by other teachers and students. Classes will be tailored to your language competences and needs: you can start your exploration with us if you are a beginner or you can dig deeper into the most problematic and interesting issues if your level is more advanced.
In the second week, you will take a course on Classroom Management. This course has been created for teachers who want to learn more about managing an effective and up to date classroom that encourages participation and engaged learning using the latest techniques and classroom tools.
Teachers will learn more about managing a classroom through reflection, teacher observation, and case scenarios, which encourage discussion and resolution of the most common classroom problems. Through interactive and engaging activities participants will learn how to boost motivation, establish classroom rules, provide clear instructions, monitor, develop rapport, incorporate pair and group work, and gain tips for encouraging students to reflect on their own classroom behavior.
In addition, the course will include discussion on what exactly a Flipped Classroom is and how this new teaching method can be put to use with the subject being taught. As a participant, you will also become more familiar with Project and Task-Based Learning and take away ideas for evaluating student learning and participation effectively. Finally, assessment and evaluation will be addressed along with the incorporation of student portfolios, rubrics, and presentation strategies.
By the end of the course, you will have expanded your proficiency in English by observing and absorbing authentic communication practices, supported by local professional tutors. Moreover, you will have gained greater insight into what makes a classroom run smoothly and what it takes to improve your students’ motivation.
The course will help the participants to understand how to:
- Manage a classroom effectively by establishing rules with logical consequences;
- Deal with difficult behaviors by working on collaborative solutions;
- Give clear instructions, organize pair and group work, and develop positive relationships;
- Motivate learners and get them to reflect on their behavior;
