To maintain an effective and engaging learning environment in the classroom remains the top priority for any teacher. Preparing students for their academic growth along with moral, emotional growth comes under effective Classroom Management.
To bring out the best in their efficient teaching staff, a workshop for Classroom Management was conducted at St. John’s School with Anon Global Foundation. The resource person, Ms Arti Girdhar, took the teachers on a wonderful ride of learning and interaction.
It was discussed that there are good days and bad days in every person’s life and circumstances change, but how is a teacher supposed to cope with it, keeping up the connection with students is what makes a real impact. It is agreed that teaching is one noble profession and it comes with a great responsibility. So teachers must understand the significance of certain aspects in day to day school life and then work on them judiciously. New ideas must be adopted, breaking the regular patterns, improvising, keeping priorities, battles need to be chosen wisely, diffusing the conflicts among students and so on.
Teachers were taught about Anger Management and how anger can be both destructive and constructive. Given the example of the movie Hulk, managing anger and converting that emotion into a productive one was discussed.
With props in abundance, the workshop was indeed engaging. Teachers were grateful to have had such a learning opportunity.
