Stepping Stones to Student Engagement
Creating a Calm, Focused Environment for Communication to Flourish
This short book, an excerpt from Year One: A Natural Approach to the Year, will guide you through the foundations of managing a comprehensible input classroom. Classroom management is the key skill to support your students' language acquisition. In this book, we present a full training program that can transform your management from the inside out. We made this chapter from the book available separately because we thought it was so important to share our hard-won understandings of managing student behavior and attention, to help you shift the energy in your classroom towards calm, centered listening and comprehension.
CI Liftoff is a teacher-run company on a mission -- to make your life as a language teacher as simple and joyful as possible! The CI Liftoff team is dedicated to helping YOU make comprehension-based communicative language teaching lift off in your classroom, so that your students can experience the joy of language acquisition the natural way, the way the brain learns. We love nothing more than seeing professional language educators working less, smiling more, and feeling satisfied in their careers.
