In this week’s The Balanced Educator Podcast, we’re talking about a BIG topic in education – Classroom Management.
We’re redefining this term and challenging you to take on a different perspective on classroom management.
We ask ourselves, instead of managing our students and our classroom, what if we taught them how to self-regulate and supported them in learning how to self-regulate? What if we taught them how to develop an intrinsic motivation to learn?
We talk about how to get our students to possess intrinsic motivation so that they can motivate themselves to act a certain way or to learn something.
We share two classroom routines that can really help to teach kids how to self-regulate: a mindfulness practice and intentional discussion times on a daily basis. We dive into how to implement this in the classroom!
