UNIT 5: CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT

In this unit we are looking at classroom management for different stages of activities. We will especially look at giving good instructions. We’ll see that classroom management is different for different contexts (where you work, who your students are, etc.).  Then we’ll look at a range of short activities that can be used at the beginning or end of a lesson, or when we need to wake students up or calm them down. Finally, we’ll plan the stages and instructions for one activity. We’ll share this with our course colleagues.
