In many ways a successful class is a successful team. The very best classes involve students collaborating, contributing, encouraging, helping, listening, negotiating, managing conflict, planning, problem solving and sharing ideas: all teamwork skills.
In this webinar, Rachael will look at a range of practical activities to help your class bond better as a group, help individual students to both identify personal strengths they can already bring to a team, and develop those abilities they are not yet confident about.
She will also look at ways of dealing with conflict in teams, and how you can teach students to deal with conflict appropriately and positively.
In many organisations today, it is becoming more and more common for everyone in a team to be asked to take on some kind of leadership role. These kinds of skills are invaluable for both work and study, and will considerably enhance your students’ employability in the future.
In this webinar, Rachael will look at ways in which you can integrate teaching or developing leadership skills into your usual classroom practice.
As teachers, we can help our students learn how to make better choices, and how to undertake an effective decision-making process.
In this webinar, Rachael will teach you what an effective decision-making process might look like, and how to pass on these valuable skills to your students.
We will also consider how to help your students understand themselves and their values more fully, how to think critically about the information available before making a decision, and to subsequently reflect on the process and outcome.
Employers are increasingly looking for self-starters who can be relied upon to manage their own time, plan and deliver work seamlessly.
In this webinar, Rachael will look at some practical strategies that English teachers such as you, can use to not only get yourself more organised (which provides a better model for your students), but can also be used in regular classroom activities that help your students improve their planning, prioritising and organising skills.
