It’s now almost half way through the autumn term in most UK schools and in schools and colleges in many other countries.
Here is session 2 of my 10-week Teacher Training course for teachers of Young Learners. It can be run with new teachers of children (and those with some experience too!) and it explores the ins and outs of good classroom management, both principles and practice. All you need is an IWB, access to the Internet and Teachers TV or You Tube, plus some fairly basic pen and paper materials.
I hope you find these materials stimulating and relevant to your teaching context. Do please let me know if you have any feedback or questions.
Ahead of the return to school for most teachers and young learners, I am pleased to share a ten-week initial Teacher Training course for recently qualified teachers of children and young teenagers. I wrote this when I was still working as a Teacher Trainer and have updated it to place it on my blog.
Feeling pleased with myself after meeting a looming deadline for a content edit of a Lower Secondary course. It was really interesting work and the writer had done a good job of revising the draft so it was mainly a case of formatting the text and fleshing out the art and photo briefs. Now back at the grindstone doing some content mapping of a Primary course against YL can-do descriptors.
It’s been a busy week content editing a Primary course to produce a new version of an existing course for Egypt. It was a steep learning curve, but once I got into it I really enjoyed it and I think the pupils will too as the team has really revamped the stories. I’m spending some time this weekend catching up on the content mapping that is ongoing.
