At the end of a lesson, most students are ready to pack-up and go to the next class and I have had problems keeping those student s who finish early from alerting those who are not finished. By using the stratiges of assigning tasks and asking what was learned in class could give those who need more time to complete their work.

This is the second year that I've readied myself for school by re-watching these classroom management videos. Well done!

    Summary

    Demonstrating how body language or non-verbal communication is useful for teaching and reinforcing knowledge of difficult concepts.
    Body language expert Chris Caswell, assistant headteacher at Myton School, observes and reviews a modern foreign languages class on verbs.
    He highlights how the teacher's gestures help her command the class in front of the whiteboard, and how changes to her intonation indicate when she wants pupils to listen and when she wants participation.
