Behaviour and engagement in the socially distanced classroom
About this webinar:
Getting to grips with behaviour can be difficult at the best of times, but with the added complexity of the pandemic, it can be very tough. This session will look at the basics of behaviour management in terms of effective relationships as well as tackle some of the issues that social distancing has brought. We will explore what work can be done before your lesson even begins, then give tips on managing behaviour in the lesson as well as lots of practical tips to assist with a great classroom culture.
