Then you’re in the right place. You’re going to find out all about these tips for managing an ESL or EFL classroom full of elementary school students. Challenging, yes. But, also entirely possible with the ideas from this book.
ESL Classroom Management Tips and Tricks
I remember back to when I first started teaching in a hagwon (private language institute) in Korea and how much of a struggle it was. The root of the problem was that I was totally and completely clueless about classroom management and the kids totally knew it. They walked all over me and I basically had no control, for at least the first six months.
Even though I did eventually establish some order in my ESL classroom, it wasn’t as happy or as productive of place as it could have been. Over the years, I’ve figured it out, but it certainly would have been much easier if I’d had an ESL classroom management boot camp of sorts.
I read general ESL teaching resource books, but their sections on classroom management were limited to just a few paragraphs. “Keep order in the classroom.” “Give positive reinforcement instead of negative.” The suggestions were so general and didn’t have any actionable strategies. Useless for someone actually in the trenches and struggling with some difficult students.
This is why we wrote this book-to give you actionable ESL classroom management strategies. They actually work and you’ll find that your classes go much more smoothly if you follow our tips.
