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.
