Beginning Teacher Series: Sharpen Your Skills – Shouting Don’t Grow Dendrites: 20 Techniques to Detour Around the Danger Zones

November 18, 2023

Have you ever noticed that the louder some teachers get when reprimanding students, the louder those students then become? Join Marcia Tate, an author and leader in brain-based teaching to learn strategies for managing an active, brain-compatible classroom without ever raising your voice.

Experience the following five techniques that proactive classroom managers use to avoid problems in the first place:

  • Develop a relationship with each student.
  • Create a physical classroom environment that is conducive to optimal learning.
  • Deliver engaging lessons with the use of brain-compatible strategies.
  • Develop a proactive management plan.
  • Tackle the most challenging 10% of students by using techniques which appear to work with such chronic behavior disorders as attention-deficit, conduct, or oppositional disorder.

You will also experience the bonus of learning to create a home environment that minimizes stress and maximizes calm!
