Understand the essential components that help create, sustain and develop the most effective Climate for Learning
Identify appropriate strategies and approaches and formulate some actions to be used back in school to develop current practice
( + Answer your questions along the way)
"What is happening to our young people? They disrespect their elders, they disobey their parents. They ignore the law. They riot in the streets inflamed with wild notions. Their morals are decaying. What is to become of them?"
Plato 4th Century AD
The teacher’s role is actually to lead students beyond external control to self directed and shared control
Rather than ask how you can more effectively control
….. it is more appropriate and constructive to ask….
“…how can I be a more effective teacher
and manager of learning?”
…have an individual encouraging / reinforcing word as they enter the classroom
…“meet and greet”
?? How do I engage my pupils right from the start of my lessons??
…have a starter task prepared on the desks / on screen
…pose them a question / set them a problem
…do a `line-up` activity outside the classroom
Outside: “we are going into a learning environment – normal learning rules apply – in quietly, bags in proper place, your first activity is on the board – you have two minutes, and then be prepared to feedback to the class”
Inside: “settling down, thanks” / “listening this way, thanks” / “looking this way and listening, thanks” (say this as though it will happen instantly)
Address? : “folks” / “people” / “6D” / “Everyone”
Positive interactions : Listening! / following instructions
Appropriate use of resources : Use of classroom equipment
Appropriate use of language :
Speaking politely / Waiting turn to speak
Able to work independently :
bringing correct equipment time on-task / allowing others to work
“Effective teachers have a clear vision for managing behaviour through establishing clear rules and boundaries, with emphasis on the positive”
… the Hay McBer report
“Effective teachers create an environment that maximises pupils’ opportunities and motivation to learn….
….Pupils look to the teacher to create a sense of security and order in the classroom, and want opportunities to participate in rewarding and interesting activities”
What are your routines / protocols for dealing with these… [….and how do they maximise the opportunities for learning and support, maintain the climate for learning?...]
… are there more effective ways of dealing with the above…?
*REVENGE *FEAR OF FAILURE / (SUCCESS)
Consider the sub-groups in your identified class , and how they respond to the learning environment you create.
Modelling the behaviour we want to see
Techniques… choice etc…
