The person who the Author taught the most to in his first year of teaching was, interestingly enough, himself! Since then he has collected and honed many Teaching & Classroom Management Hints – some learnt from other teachers, others from self-study, some from past experiences and some from students who he has taught. Discipline and Classroom Management are both such elusive topics that it’s difficult to pin down just one or two ‘magic strategies’ that will transform an inexperienced teacher into someone who is well respected by students and who maintains impeccable control within the classroom. This booklet contains ten (10) essential skills that a beginning teacher should have in their kitbag.
