Classroom Management Strategies: Creating Calm from Chaos

Classroom Management: PDP Framework will ensure you are creating a calm classroom with high expectations for learning

Created by Jay Morris - Excellence in Education WA


Students: 19, Price: $69.99

Students: 19, Price:  Paid

Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed in the classroom? Is it sometimes hard to get students to listen to you? Would you like to build your capacity as an effective teacher? Then this is the course for you. The course is designed to provide you with classroom management skills (CMS) and tactics using the PRE-DURING-POST (PDP) Framework. 

As teachers we sometimes think that the only way we can improve the behaviour of students is when we are inside the classroom.  This course will teach you that there is so much more we can do before we enter and after the class itself to smash the chaos and encourage the calm.  Using this PDP framework to guide your thinking and build your skill set, will increase your effectiveness as a teacher. 

Not only does it cover preventative strategies, but also low key skills and the language of choice.  It will also look at the best way to respond to students that engage in student-teacher power battles.  Its all in here and waiting to be share with you. 

This course is great for newly qualified teachers and teachers who just want to increase the tools in their CMS tool belt.  Teaching can be hard, especially in term three when teachers and students are tired.  We need a strong 'Why' to remind us why we became a teacher in the first place, reminding ourselves of this will get us through these tough times.  This course will help guide you.

Motivational Speaker?

Religious speaker?

Teaching Adults?

But you are not reaching every listener.

Selling a product?

But your potential buyer is not convinced.

Instructor/ teacher/ educator?

You are a great teacher, but your students do not learn like they should.

As a speaker/ sales or educator of adults, you should ask questions!

I mentor many speakers, trainers, teachers, instructors, motivational speakers, religious speakers, and group therapists around the world on working with difficult students, course design, advanced teaching skills, and "out-of-the-box-training-methods", and they all found that this course answered many of their questions.

This course makes speakers talk!

This course received great reviews and feedback on international Annual Training Conferences in the last year alone!

This is guaranteed to change the way you think when preparing your speech, talk, sermon, sales pitch, or class!


Regardless of what field of expertise you are and what you teach. It does not matter what level students (beginner to professor levels) are.

You MUST ask yourself:

+ what did the greatest teachers of all time know and do that got lost?

+ how do adults REALLY learn?

+ why do learners get disconnected in any class?

+ why are some students difficult in any class?

+ what prevents adults (or children) from learning)?

+ why do some people find learning hurtful and how can YOU fix it?

+ why do some people grow up afraid of learning?

+ how can you understand Every student in any class you teach, and in turn get better results from THEM?

+ how can you become THAT instructor everybody talks about and refer everyone to?

This course was presented at an International Annual Training Conference recently and received fantastic feedback!

I am sure you will find the content as interesting as I have when I designed the course.

(This course received great feedback from international instructor association members).

Do you want your students to perform even better?

So, you teach adults. Whether you are an instructor, teacher or educator, you work with adults every day.

You do everything you have learnt on your instructor course, but something is wrong... (your students don't learn like they should)

On your instructor course, you have learnt about:

Teaching principles:

  • Relating the known to the unknown

  • Progressing from simple to complex

  • Breaking a whole skill down into its components and teaching one at a time

Teaching methods:

  • Actual experience

  • When should simulated experience be used for safety reasons?

  • Role Play

  • Demonstration

  • Small group techniques

You do all this by the book and use the teaching principles and teaching methods...


Why is it that some students do not connect with you or the class?

  • Why does it look like some of the students are distant and just does not learn?

  • What prevents them from learning?

  • Do we as teachers understand how adult REALLY learn, or have we got it totally wrong?

  • What did the great teachers of ancient times do that got lost over the years?

  • How can I push up my class total pass rate?

  • How can I understand my students better, and in turn, get them to automatically learn better?

  • What can I do to help them remember the course content?

  • Would this course help if you teach children? OF COURSE!

This course will help you as a teacher to get out of the conventional box of teaching and get you to lift EVERY student to reach THEIR potential.

What if there are no dumb or unteachable student, but we as teachers brand them because we do not understand them?

I will see you on course!

Children experience rapid physical changes through infancy and early childhood. Various skills like Fine Motor, Gross Motor and Cognitive skills are the abilities usually acquired during childhood. Early literacy and early numeracy are other two important skill areas that develop during the early childhood period. Research suggests that there are important cognitive connections between early literacy and numeracy skill development that may help us to think more broadly about children's early academic learning. These two skill areas appear to be related to one another. Sand Play promotes physical development. Large muscle skills develop as children dig, pour, sift, scoop, and clean up spills with brush and dustpan. Sand play also promotes social skills.

Rotational classroom activities integrates all these aspects of learning and help in enhancing child development. The classroom is arranged keeping in mind 4-5 stations of learning and children get a chance to move from one station to other after the completion of an activity. This promotes children movement in the classroom and greater understanding of the concepts. Now keeping in mind the weekly class planner, the Educator can setup  4-5 such stations in Preschool and about 5 stations in Kindergarten and primary classrooms.

Stations which can be created for Rotational Activities:

  • Literacy (Reading & Writing) Station

  • Numeracy Station

  • Program of inquiry ( POI )

  • Social Science/ General Awareness

  • Tech friendly Workstation

  • Creative Art Station

  • Cooking/ Baking Station

  • Pot Painting Station

  • Sand & Water Play

  • Reuse, Reduce, Recycle

Instructional design can be defined as the creation of instructional materials, modules or lessons. The instructional design process consists of determining the needs of the learners, defining the end goals and objectives of instruction, designing and planning assessment tasks, and designing teaching and learning activities to ensure the quality of instruction.

The instructional design theory is the theory that offers explicit guidance on how to better help learn and develop. The kind of learning and development may include cognitive, emotional, social, physical and spiritual. There are two major aspects of any instructional situation the conditions under which the instruction will take place and the desired outcomes of the instruction. Instructional design is a technology which incorporates known and verified learning strategies into instructional experiences which make the acquisition of knowledge and skill more efficient, effective, and appealing.

Instructional design can start at any point in the design process. Often a glimmer of an idea is developed to give the core of an instruction situation, By the time the entire process is done the designer looks back and she or he checks to see that all parts of the "science" have been taken into account. Then the entire process is written up as if it occurred in a systematic fashion.
