Watch the video below of two, first-year (NQTs = newly qualified teacher), UK-based primary school teachers dealing with behaviour issues and other classroom management issues. Observe and watch specifically the following aspects of classroom management so that you can offer commentary on the things that these teachers are practising well and things that they could improve:
Body language and non-verbal cues of the teachersImplementation of proceduresEffective communicationConsideration of the self-esteem of the learnersClassroom atmosphere and an physical environment conducive to learning
Write a journal post on what you think the two teachers (Tara Turner – long-haired teacher who got lice, eeck! – and Rosie Warden) are doing well and what, in your opinion, you think they can improve upon.
