5 traps that will kill you in a classroom. Hola hoop and more...

Marcin Stanowski


This talk will focus on psychological mechanisms that probably all teachers succumb to. Being at least aware of them may save you a lot of suffering. I will discuss my own failures and maybe we all could learn a lesson on how to manage groups more effectively, care more about our relations with students and not lose our sanity when we deal with difficult behaviours.
