Guarantee yourself a fun and stress-free year with this comprehensive management guide made just for foreign language teachers, even those who work with "high-risk" students! I currently teach a course on classroom management at Auburn University for foreign language interns and teachers, and I teach French full-time at a public high school. This guide is a condensed but thorough version of the course I teach on management at Auburn University with the system that I use in my own classroom.
I created this guide specifically for the needs of foreign language teachers. We as foreign language teachers have very special needs when it comes to structuring our classrooms to help us and students stay in the target language over 90% of the time. Whether you teach in a "high-risk" school, a magnet school, or a private school, these strategies will work to give you the classroom atmosphere and joy of teaching that you've always wanted. I use these techniques in my own classroom and can say first hand that they do work and that they will make your class more fun and enjoyable for both you and your students!
The guide includes the following:
-50+ pages of detailed explanation for my classroom-tested classroom management system
-detailed explanation of a token participation system with pictures
-15+ detailed descriptions of games to play in your classroom for time earned throughout the week for following rules and procedures
-a parent letter and supply list for the start of the course
-a syllabus for a level one course
-token participation system envelope grids and weekly record keeping form
-printable "euro" token coins
-a PDF copy of my first day of school Prezi presentation (you can also download and edit it for free to customize it for your classroom at www.prezi.com by searching my name, Sara Ahnell)
-"Foreign Language Classroom Management in a Nutshell" quick reference guide
As with all of my products, this has been classroom tested and approved!:)
