Talk / Classroom Management Strategies for the English Foreign Language Context
Teachers of all creeds are constantly making decisions on behavior management in the classroom. However, when there is a language barrier such as the one in the English foreign language (EFL) setting, those decisions and actions can become more difficult to execute. Due to this issue, this presenter will inform the audience on positive ways to handle difficult behaviors in the classroom through strategies derived from Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA). Following the presentation, the audience will be invited to discuss issues in their own classrooms and brainstorm solutions together. This interactive presentation will be applicable for all ages and levels of English.
