Great deal! Buy ENVoY, A Healthy Classroom and Righting the Educational Conveyor Belt Super Bundle
Michael’s classic educational work is ENVoY. It is designed for every teacher because it is the science of classroom management. A Healthy Classroom is the art of classroom management. While ENVoY is immediately usable, A Healthy Classroom is designed as a five-month program. Righting the Educational Conveyor Belt is Michael’s ground-breaking work on educational teaching patterns. By coaching over 100 teachers a month in their classrooms (over 5,000 in all!), Michael elicited patterns of excellent teaching and explained them in practical terms.
ENVoY is a collection of 31 strategies that the teacher either applies when interacting with an individual student or the class as a whole. A Healthy Classroom is designed to help understand the hardest management situations the teacher faces – when the teacher has to grapple with both the individual and the class at the same time. While teaching the entire class, the teacher often has to quickly assess what to do with an individual student who is inappropriate. Just as troublesome is the situation when the teacher is reprimanding an individual student and the whole class is watching. A Healthy Classroom tackles these group dynamic situations with insight and practical axioms. The first four chapters are written for the first four months of a school year.
What is the ENVoY program?
ENVoY is a vehicle to shift educators from seeing themselves as bastions of Power to instruments of Influence. When used by cadres of instructors within a school, this material brings out the professional strengths of all the members involved. We need to elevate ourselves from within… we need systems which enable us to profit from the wealth of abilities that lie in insular classrooms. It is only through sharing and supporting processes that the collective wisdom of the staff emerges.
What is the ENVoY book?
This is Michael’s best-selling book for teachers about classroom management techniques. Widely used in the U.S., Europe, Australia, Asia and Latin America. This book is a collection of 31 techniques that teachers use. By becoming aware of them, the teacher can use the techniques on the days when he or she most needs them. Chapter 1 is a summary of the seven best techniques of all 31. The 31 skills are presented in forms that the individual teacher can fill out on him- or herself, and these same forms are re-written as peer observation competency sheets. This allows for peer coaching – the single fastest way to increase professional growth. Chapters 2-5: The book also includes 24 other essential skills, many of them refinements of the Seven Gems. The techniques are mostly non-verbal, and, in spite of their importance, are rarely taught in teacher preparation programs.
