'Emotional Intelligence in the Classroom' explains the critical place of emotional intelligence in behaviour management in order to create an effective classroom climate for effective teaching-and-learning to occur.
The course includes video materials and Word documents and will take approximately 1 hour to complete.
The course is structured into six parts:
1. 'Emotional Intelligence in the Classroom' - an introduction
2. Emotional Intelligence and The Learning Brain
3. The 3 Phases of Maturity
4. The 6 Emotional Intelligence Skills for the Classroom
5. A Booklet of Practical Strategies for the Classroom
6. The Emotional Intelligence Quiz
The course also explains the hierarchy of learning and where emotional intelligence is within this hierarchy. In addition, the course explains how the teaching of emotional intelligence forms the foundations for the empowerment of students' learning.
Imagine your teaching day with no behaviour issues....
Imagine having a unique insight into each student's learning brain - how it works and how you can develop it to make every student you teach engaged, successful students...
Well, this has been happening in thousands of schools for over ten years so join the 'Readiness-to-Learn' revolution!
This lecture explains the first and most important skill, empathy, and how it allows a teacher to personalise their approach to classes and individual students in order to develop positive relationships which leads to positive learning outcomes.
This skill develops students' kindness at an age when competitiveness is often, mistakenly, over-valued. The concept of caring being an 'essential human skill' which creates a safe, happy environment for learning is the principle of the lecture.
This lecture explains the relationship between sympathy and adapting choices and reactions to students' behaviour.
This lecture explains how the skill of dignity can improve students' self-respect and respect of others.
This lecture focuses on 'the ability to say sorry' based on the concept that 'everyone is equal and by removing concepts of hierarchies (i.e. focusing on 'winning' and 'being right') sustains positive relationships and avoids conflicts.
This skill, one of the hardest, develops the concept of 'understanding and not judging' others - a critical skill in an environment where peer-pressure and 'excluding to fit in' is so prevalent. Creates kinder people.
You will be able to review your score at the end of the quiz.
