Talking to Teenagers: A guide to skilful classroom communication
The success or failure of a teacher rests on one thing: the quality of their communication. Under the microscope of the modern secondary classroom, everything we say and everything we do is analysed by our teenage audience. Talking to Teenagers is a practical handbook that explores five essential communication strategies. It provides busy teachers with the scripts they need to improve learning and form effective relationships with teenagers.
This book looks at understanding teenagers and their brain development, mastering the art of non-verbal communication, teaching positive behaviour and scripting your responses, using the LEAP acronym in the classroom, and how to drive motivation and build habits in your students. If you feel your communication in the classroom is often on autopilot, this book will fuel you with the strategies, phrases and understanding that will help you to be the best version of yourself in the classroom.
