Micro Skills of Engaging  (Education is the process – Mensch is the method)

…challenges conventional professional development methods of focussing on the ‘what’ of communication.  This training module instead highlights that starting with the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of effective communication in the classroom creates more productive learning outcomes.  This seminar encourages and empowers teachers with the practical skills of how to engage those in their classrooms as people, not just as students of the curriculum.

 

Classroom commerce empowers teachers by…

  • Exploring the application: The keys of communication skills that connect versus clash
  • Recognising the sociology: The school is the centre of the village, the demands are ever increasing, the resources are ever diminishing – understanding where we stand
  • Embracing the educational psychology: “Teachers pursue unattainable goals with inadequate tools. The miracle is that at times they do this – but schools cannot survive on miracles. Every teacher deserves effective tools and skills to do their job.” Dr Haim Ginott (teacher, author, child psychologist and psychotherapist)
