About the course

The SSTUWA, in partnership with TLN in Melbourne, are pleased to offer this online learning opportunity.

A core responsibility for all teachers, is to create an environment in which all students can learn and thrive. An effective classroom environment does not happen by accident or magic; the skills and knowledge need to be learned and then practiced and refined over many years.

Schools place great responsibility and trust in teachers in middle leadership roles, including Year Level Coordinators, HODs, Level 3 CRTs and Deputies.

Teachers in these leadership roles need to work with colleagues to build skills and knowledge, model effective teaching practices and be available to respond when things do not go right.

In this session, Australia’s leading classroom management specialist will take you through his ‘seven steps to success’:

1.            Classroom expectations shared & owned (learning norms & behaviours)

2.            Classroom routines taught & known (actively teaching skills for success)

3.            Active supervision of students (proactive relationships & behaviour promotion)

4.            Positive environment (6:1 positive to negative ratio/classroom dialogue)

5.            Functional physical layout (setting the room up for success)

6.            Maximize academic engagement (collaboration & curiosity)

7.            Predictable responses to problem behaviour (promoting positive behaviours)

At the end of this session you will have a clear plan of how to work with your colleagues to build knowledge and skills about being an effective classroom teacher.

This session is for middle leaders in schools and for those who aspire to those roles. This is an essential course for those who are on a leadership journey in schools.
