Simon ward Positive behaviour managementIn this highly interactive session, teachers will be encouraged to reflect on
their skills in managing behaviour in the classroom Areas to be covered
include: creating the climate, planning for good behaviour, teacher
response styles, re-direction techniques, the language of discipline and
challenging students. The session will explore practical, positive and
creative strategies for developing classroom management skills.
ROOM 1 ESO
M Jess Pramo The secrets in the mix In this session, we look at how to identify mixed ability in the secondary
classroom and provide strategies for dealing with it efficiently and
effectively. We will take into consideration the setting of rules; the
organising of groupwork and co-operative learning and working with
different materials. We will also consider aspects of evaluation and self-
evaluation with mixed-ability groups. Some of this session will be illustrated
with video footage of students from 4 ESO.
Jade Stevens Together everyone achieves more!Language learning requires many forms of interaction in which
communication and collaboration with others is essential. By engaging in
collaborative learning, students not only get to interact with others on a
common task, but they also get to pool and capitalize on one anothers
knowledge and skills. Collaborative learning techniques can help us build
teams and contribute to a necessary positive learning environment in which
learners can thrive to become confident learners, language learners and
individuals. In this session, a range of collaborative learning techniques to
create a positive learning environment will be demonstrated.

The session will be very practical and involve a lot of teacher participation. Teachers will come away with practical activities to use with their own students.
