4 The Underknown Skills of Classroom Management What is classroom management? It involves using the board, making groups, moving chairs and giving clear instructions but is there more to it than that? Yes - there are many wonderful, easy-to-learn techniques (unknown or unused even by experienced teachers) that can transform a classroom by getting students engaged, interacting and really focused on learning. In this very practical talk we'll look at a many key interventions that help to shape your lessons including: Walking away, Not rubberstamping, Blank face, Devil's advocate, Intentional not hearing. You will discover some techniques you may know well but also others that are new to you and which have the potential to completely alter the quality of your teaching and your students' learning. At some point in every student's learning path they will be tested in one way or another. As such, tests are an inevitable part of our teaching programmes. The term 'tests' however, covers a wide variety of assessment types from a simple question from the teacher to a lengthy written exam. The aim of this session is to help you, as teachers, better understand assessment and we will be addressing questions such as 'What s in a test?', 'How is a test constructed?' and, most importantly Why does it matter? WORKSHOPS Let's Focus on Listening - Simple and Practical activities to help students improve their listening skills In a region where there is little opportunity to hear English spoken anywhere outside the language classroom, the weakest skill of most students is that of listening. Yet it is essential to successful communication. You will leave this hands-on session with some simple and practical ideas for improving learners' listening skills at an A2-B1 level. It's a well-known fact now that children learn well through games and movement, but as a teacher, it's often difficult to find the time to build a repetoire of interesting and effective learning games. In this session, you will put yourself in your students' shoes by taking part in some fun and useful classroom activities for learners of Primary school age. All the activities require minimal preparation by the teacher and can be used with a variety of levels. Digital skills and resources for teachers - exploring the options The internet offers teachers an enormous range of resources for teaching, learning and teacher development but the choice is so wide where do you start and how do you know what to use?. This session looks at some ideas for exploiting online resources and social media for the classroom and for teacher development. Many of the resources explored will also be of interest to teachers preparing candidates for Cambridge English exams and for teachers looking for online solutions for their own professional development
