Programme 1: Working with a big class
Teachers say ‘classroom management’ is the first big challenge of large classes, as we need to keep all the students engaged during the English period.
In this programme, we hear suggestions and tips from a number of different teachers who work with large classes.
- Dini talks about using ‘magic words’, while Li describes a reward system for good behaviour.
- We hear one teacher start her class with personalised practice to motivate her students and create an atmosphere in which they can try out their English.
- Shoba demonstrates how we should plan our lessons to include different kinds of practice, keeping students working actively, and have a clear aim for every class.
