Sometimes it is hard to know how to respond to an email or an incident related to student behaviour or lack of success. Classroom management brings challenges and our communication choices can be tricky – everything can be recorded or forwarded! Come work through varied short scenarios and discuss when to escalate, when to be very cautious, and who can support you.
