Overview

Classroom management is the ability to create and maintain a conducive, collaborative learning environment with and for students. As language teachers, how do we best establish such an environment? Managing the Language Classroom introduces a practical, fresh approach to classroom management which discusses 10 principles to ensure students remain at the heart of a structured, practical, and effective classroom. Quirke's methods follow the DREAM philosophy; Develop and delegate, Recruit and respect, Enhance and enjoy, Appraise and attend, and Mentor and motivate. Learn how to unpack the complexity behind a teacher's daily classroom work and channel tacit knowledge into a well-designed, productive learning environment.
