“Classroom Management: The 5-Ring Framework" (also known as: What I Wish I Knew as a Beginner Teacher) will cover foundational elements of effective classroom management that may be overlooked or unknown.
The "5 Rings" (or components) of this workshop will include:
The Theory (& the teacher-persona),
The Space (classroom set-up),
The Rituals (a.k.a. procedures),
The Triple Rs (Rules, Rewards, Ramifications), and
The Teaching (instructional strategies).
Through this workshop, participants will gain a stronger understanding of how to influence the learning environment and behaviour of students. Participants will also acquire a number of practical strategies they will be able to implement - right away - in their classrooms. Hope to see you there!
Note-taking materials (optional)
Since graduating from Queen’s University’s Concurrent Education program in 2011, Sharon has taught Kindergarten to Grade 12 students domestically and abroad, in international, public, private, and First Nations schools. One of her most challenging and enriching teaching experiences took place in Grassy Narrows First Nation, where she worked as the Grade 2/3 teacher and Acting Vice Principal. Eventually, the cold climate of this Northwestern Ontario community caused her to Google “warmest place in Canada” and led her to migrate to Victoria, BC. Since November of 2019, Sharon has been working as a Teacher-on-Call in District 61; teaching new classes each week, it is this position in particular that has opened her eyes to the necessity of sharp classroom management skills. She is excited to share her learning with the participants of “Classroom Management: The 5-Ring Framework".
