Interactive Skills For Teachers DVD





  • All ages (4-18)

Manage challenging classroom behaviour more easily with this DVD.

This DVD helps you understand challenging behaviour in a classroom situation and shows you how to apply this knowledge to develop a calm and confident teacher response.

Using different styles of approach you learn how to:

  • Adapt your body language and verbal language
  • Use personal space for best effect
  • Develop your own self-calming strategies in managing difficult behaviours

Section 1 looks at typical styles of approach and helps you:

  • Understand the link between emotions and behaviour
  • Understand how this drives behaviour in different circumstances
  • Explore instinctive responses and self-calming techniques

Section 2 demonstrates passive and hostile styles of approach and
response, including passive verbal and body language, speed of approach,
pleading, threatening and giving up.

Section 3 focuses on personal space and moving in – and the effect on both
the emotion and the behaviour of teacher and pupil. You explore:

  • How to use social space, personal space and intimate space
  • How to use eye contact
  • How to gain attention and take an appropriate calm stance when close to a pupil

Section 4 demonstrates the key points to remember for a calm and confident
manner, including the concept of ‘muscle memory’ – for a natural, automatic
teacher response.

Section 5 concludes with a question and answer session with the studio
audience, including some key ‘What if?’ questions.

Total running time: 60 minutes

Also included are handouts and useful discussion points as a pdf on the disc.
