In this session you will be taken through the following seven effective skills that effective teachers use to achieve a calm and productive classroom:

1.           Classroom expectations shared & owned (learning norms & behaviours)

2.           Classroom routines taught & known (actively teaching skills for success)

3.           Active supervision of students (proactive relationships & behaviour promotion)

4.           Positive environment (6:1 positive to negative ratio/classroom dialogue)

5.           Functional physical layout (setting the room up for success)

6.           Maximise academic engagement (collaboration & curiosity)

7.           Predictable responses to negative & positive behaviour (promoting positive behaviours)

A core responsibility for all teachers is to create an environment in which all students can learn and thrive. An effective classroom environment does not happen by accident or magic; the skills and knowledge need to be learned and then practised and refined over many years.                                  

Key takeaways               

  • a clear plan to reflect on what you say and do in your classroom and
  • a clear plan to implement 7 essential skills that effective teachers have used for decades in education.
