A Healthy Classroom—Group dynamics in the classroom. How to utilize relationships in the classroom.
The non-verbal communication skills offered in this training will positively influence the group dynamics of the classroom — shifting away from discipline to positive classroom management.
Learn the techniques and gain insight into what it takes to make a healthy classroom — a course that combines theory with implementation of the science of classroom management. A Healthy Classroom is designed to help understand the hardest management situations the teacher faces — when the teacher has to grapple with both the individual and the class at the same time. A Healthy Classroom tackles classroom group dynamic situations with insight and practical axioms.
Prerequisite and audience
-While the program is open to anyone, it is intended for regular educators from second-twelfth grade who have been teaching for at least 3 years; this is because early primary and special education students tend not to operate from a group dynamic template. Having 3 years experience will add a foundation to build the "art" of this class onto. Since the concepts apply to faculties and community groups, this program is ideal for administrators, trainers, and staff developers.
