Personal Guide to Classroom Management

The Course

ENVoY is a research-proven collection of classroom management techniques that preserve the relationship between teacher and student. Marzano's studies indicate that "relationship" is the number one variables that determines students' success.

The non-verbal communication skills offered in this training will positively influence the single most powerful point in

education—the teacher-student relationship. This program, when used by cadres of instructors within a school, brings out the professional strengths of all the members involved.

We need to elevate ourselves from within... we need systems which enable us to profit from the wealth of abilities that lie in insular classrooms. Sharing our collective wisdom It is only through sharing and supporting processes that the collective wisdom of the staff emerges.

Topics of Study are:
  • The four times teachers most often use management techniques
  • Why non-verbal messages are more effective in classroom management than verbal messages
  • Recognizing and responding to the various learning styles of students
  • Disciplining for student needs rather than for teacher needs
  • Establishing and preserving relationships of influence

    “Before the students care what you know, they need to know that you care.”

    ENVoY is a vehicle to shift educators from seeing themselves as Bastions of Power to Instruments of Influence. The principles of non-verbal management can also help parents and anyone who works with children maintain positive relationships with young people while respectfully adhering to high standards for behavior.
