Classroom Management Techniques - A complete and essential activity-based guide to ELT classroom management. Classroom Management Techniques offers a huge range of practical techniques to help teachers make the most of their teaching space and get students working in more focused ways. The book helps teachers anticipate and avoid problems in the classroom, allowing more time to be devoted to meaningful activities. By analysing the classroom from three perspectives: the classroom, the teacher and the learners, the book presents a ground-breaking analysis of 14 kinds of teacher intervention, allowing teachers to examine the way they communicate with learners. It also deals with critical teaching issues including mixed level classes, difficult physical conditions and discipline.
Highly stimulating and refreshing.Reviewed by Pete Sharma
This 300-plus page teacher handbook is organised into seven chapters, focusing on the classroom, teacher, learners, key interventions, facilitating interactions, appropriate behaviour and, finally, the lesson. It contains some useful classroom layout diagrams, techniques on becoming a more authentic teacher, and advice on discipline issues. I was intrigued by the ‘mind-style’ differences model. This describes how people perceive information on a continuum from concrete to abstract, and store information along another continuum from sequential to (apparently) random. Fascinating. The central chapter on teacher interventions acknowledges a debt to the work of John Heron, and expertly presents fourteen kinds of teacher interventions. This book indeed offers ‘real solutions to real classroom problems’. The prose from this well-known author is composed and authoritative; highly stimulating and refreshing.
