Classroom Management: Settlers and Stirrers

Teaching in the primary classroom is very different from teaching teens or adults because of the amount of energy children have! Knowing how to channel this energy, or when to ‘stir' and when to ‘settle' children will help you achieve balanced lessons without children becoming over-excited on the one hand or bored on the other. An understanding of this dynamic is useful for any age group - adults can need an energy boost or a settle down time too!

Join our teaching community!

Injecting fresh ideas into our teaching practice.

It can be hard to keep developing as a teacher sometimes and especially if we work for ourselves. In these workshops, we come together as professionals to consider what we need to know to be successful in our classrooms, online, working for a school, or as self-employed teachers.

Come along and participate in our active workshops. Our workshops demonstrate teaching methods that you can take away and try. Feel shy? Just new to teaching? Don't worry, you are welcome to just come and listen in!

Thanks to Our Workshop Attendees!

“Thanks for all your work with James to put on the webinar this week. It was thoughtful and helpful. I was particularly glad to know about the breakout room functionality of Zoom. I just completed a CELTA certification course early last month and haven't begun teaching yet. So, it was great to connect with and hear from experienced teachers and begin exploring the tech for online teaching. I'll look forward to the next session. ”
